Subject[PATCH 4.14 26/55] scsi: scsi_devinfo: cleanly zero-pad devinfo strings
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Martin Wilck <mwilck@suse.com>

commit 81df022b688d43d2a3667518b2f755d384397910 upstream.

Cleanly fill memory for "vendor" and "model" with 0-bytes for the
"compatible" case rather than adding only a single 0 byte. This
simplifies the devinfo code a a bit, and avoids mistakes in other places
of the code (not in current upstream, but we had one such mistake in the
SUSE kernel).

[mkp: applied by hand and added braces]
