Subject[PATCH 4.14 036/109] net-ethtool: ETHTOOL_GUFO did not and should not require CAP_NET_ADMIN
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: "Maciej Żenczykowski" <maze@google.com>

[ Upstream commit 474ff2600889e16280dbc6ada8bfecb216169a70 ]

So it should not fail with EPERM even though it is no longer implemented...

This is a fix for:
(userns)$ egrep ^Cap /proc/self/status
CapInh: 0000003fffffffff
CapPrm: 0000003fffffffff
CapEff: 0000003fffffffff
CapBnd: 0000003fffffffff
CapAmb: 0000003fffffffff

(userns)$ tcpdump -i usb_rndis0
tcpdump: WARNING: usb_rndis0: SIOCETHTOOL(ETHTOOL_GUFO) ioctl failed: Operation not permitted
Warning: Kernel filter failed: Bad file descriptor
tcpdump: can't remove kernel filter: Bad file descriptor

With this change it returns EOPNOTSUPP instead of EPERM.

Fixes: 08a00fea6de2 "net: Remove references to NETIF_F_UFO from ethtool."
