Subject[GIT PULL] tracing: Fix regex_match_front() to not over compare the test string

Linus,

Working on some new updates to trace filtering, I noticed that the
regex_match_front() test was updated to be limited to the size
of the pattern instead of the full test string. But as the test string
is not guaranteed to be nul terminated, it still needs to consider
the size of the test string.


Please pull the latest trace-v4.17-rc4 tree, which can be found at:

tracing: Fix regex_match_front() to not over compare the test string

The regex match function regex_match_front() in the tracing filter logic,
was fixed to test just the pattern length from testing the entire test
string. That is, it went from strncmp(str, r->pattern, len) to
strcmp(str, r->pattern, r->len).

The issue is that str is not guaranteed to be nul terminated, and if r->len
is greater than the length of str, it can access more memory than is
allocated.

The solution is to add a simple test if (len < r->len) return 0.
