SubjectRe: [PATCH 9/9] Add explicit bound checks in net/socket.c
[Arjan van de Ven - Sat, Sep 26, 2009 at 08:54:32PM +0200]
| From: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@linux.intel.com>
| Subject: [PATCH 9/9] Add explicit bound checks in net/socket.c
| CC: netdev@vger.kernel.org
|
| The sys_socketcall() function has a very clever system for the copy
| size of its arguments. Unfortunately, gcc cannot deal with this in
| terms of proving that the copy_from_user() is then always in bounds.
| This is the last (well 9th of this series, but last in the kernel) such
| case around.
|
| With this patch, we can turn on code to make having the boundary provably
| right for the whole kernel, and detect introduction of new security
| accidents of this type early on.

Hi Arjan, wouldn't ARRAY_SIZE suffice beter there?
Or I miss something?
