Subject[PATCH 4.4 38/72] xfrm: Refuse to insert 32 bit userspace socket policies on 64 bit systems
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Steffen Klassert <>

commit 19d7df69fdb2636856dc8919de72fc1bf8f79598 upstream.

We don't have a compat layer for xfrm, so userspace and kernel
structures have different sizes in this case. This results in
a broken configuration, so refuse to configure socket policies
when trying to insert from 32 bit userspace as we do it already
with policies inserted via netlink.
