Subject[PATCH 3.12 25/88] wext: Fix 32 bit iwpriv compatibility issue with 64 bit Kernel
Date
From: Prasun Maiti <prasunmaiti87@gmail.com>

3.12-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

===============

commit 3d5fdff46c4b2b9534fa2f9fc78e90a48e0ff724 upstream.

iwpriv app uses iw_point structure to send data to Kernel. The iw_point
structure holds a pointer. For compatibility Kernel converts the pointer
as required for WEXT IOCTLs (SIOCIWFIRST to SIOCIWLAST). Some drivers
may use iw_handler_def.private_args to populate iwpriv commands instead
of iw_handler_def.private. For those case, the IOCTLs from
SIOCIWFIRSTPRIV to SIOCIWLASTPRIV will follow the path ndo_do_ioctl().
Accordingly when the filled up iw_point structure comes from 32 bit
iwpriv to 64 bit Kernel, Kernel will not convert the pointer and sends
it to driver. So, the driver may get the invalid data.

The pointer conversion for the IOCTLs (SIOCIWFIRSTPRIV to
SIOCIWLASTPRIV), which follow the path ndo_do_ioctl(), is mandatory.
This patch adds pointer conversion from 32 bit to 64 bit and vice versa,
if the ioctl comes from 32 bit iwpriv to 64 bit Kernel.
