I am not sure it is reasonable to simply set size here to the length of the
valid data. Though in the real world everyonne should be using the defines
and those should include the full length, the code itself does not require
this, it only prevents overly long reads. So I think it is possible to do
this read with a shorter userspace buffer; with this change we would
then write beyond the end of the buffer.

This also seems to introduce a slight behavioural difference between the
primary and compat calls. The compat call already elides the name but it
also is copying into a new structure for return and this is pre-cleared,
so the name will always be null for the compat case and undefined for
the primary ioctl.

Perhaps the below patch would be more appropriate.

Subject: [PATCH 1/1] floppy: Do not copy a kernel pointer to user memory in
FDGETPRM ioctl

The final field of a floppy_struct is the field "name", which is a pointer
to a string in kernel memory. The kernel pointer should not be copied to
user memory. The FDGETPRM ioctl copies a floppy_struct to user memory,
including this "name" field. This pointer cannot be used by the user
and it will leak a kernel address to user-space, which will reveal the
location of kernel code and data and undermine KASLR protection.

Model this code after the compat ioctl which copies the returned data
to a previously cleared temporary structure on the stack (excluding the
name pointer) and copy out to userspace from there. As we already have
an inparam union with an appropriate member and that memory is already
cleared even for read only calls make use of that as a temporary store.

Based on an initial patch by Brian Belleville.
