Subject[PATCH] checkpatch: warn for use of %px
Date
Usage of the new %px specifier potentially leaks sensitive
inforamtion. Printing kernel addresses exposes the kernel layout in
memory, this is potentially exploitable. We have tools in the kernel to
help us do the right thing. We can have checkpatch warn developers of
potential dangers of using %px.

Have checkpatch emit a warning for usage of specifier %px.

Joe,

Are you happy with this tagging? Needs your signed-off-by still.


Andrew,

Is it okay to add your Suggested-by tag here?

I'm not entirely sure when one is supposed to add someones signed-off-by
tag since the docs state that it should not be added without
permission. I am also unsure where/when is the best time to request this
permission.

thanks,
Tobin.
