Subject[PATCH v3 22/31] sctp: Copy struct sctp_sock.autoclose to userspace using put_user()
Date
From: David Windsor <dave@nullcore.net>

The autoclose field can be copied with put_user(), so there is no need to
use copy_to_user(). In both cases, hardened usercopy is being bypassed
since the size is constant, and not open to runtime manipulation.

This patch is verbatim from Brad Spengler/PaX Team's PAX_USERCOPY
whitelisting code in the last public patch of grsecurity/PaX based on my
understanding of the code. Changes or omissions from the original code are
mine and don't reflect the original grsecurity/PaX code.
