Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.9 39/98] elevator: fix truncation of icq_cache_name
Date
From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@google.com>

[ Upstream commit 9bd2bbc01d17ddd567cc0f81f77fe1163e497462 ]

gcc 7.1 reports the following warning:

block/elevator.c: In function ‘elv_register’:
block/elevator.c:898:5: warning: ‘snprintf’ output may be truncated before the last format character [-Wformat-truncation=]
"%s_io_cq", e->elevator_name);
^~~~~~~~~~
block/elevator.c:897:3: note: ‘snprintf’ output between 7 and 22 bytes into a destination of size 21
snprintf(e->icq_cache_name, sizeof(e->icq_cache_name),
^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"%s_io_cq", e->elevator_name);
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The bug is that the name of the icq_cache is 6 characters longer than
the elevator name, but only ELV_NAME_MAX + 5 characters were reserved
for it --- so in the case of a maximum-length elevator name, the 'q'
character in "_io_cq" would be truncated by snprintf(). Fix it by
reserving ELV_NAME_MAX + 6 characters instead.
