Subject[PATCH 4.17 05/31] netlink: Fix spectre v1 gadget in netlink_create()
Date
4.17-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Jeremy Cline <jcline@redhat.com>

[ Upstream commit bc5b6c0b62b932626a135f516a41838c510c6eba ]

'protocol' is a user-controlled value, so sanitize it after the bounds
check to avoid using it for speculative out-of-bounds access to arrays
indexed by it.

This addresses the following accesses detected with the help of smatch:

* net/netlink/af_netlink.c:654 __netlink_create() warn: potential
spectre issue 'nlk_cb_mutex_keys' [w]

* net/netlink/af_netlink.c:654 __netlink_create() warn: potential
spectre issue 'nlk_cb_mutex_key_strings' [w]

* net/netlink/af_netlink.c:685 netlink_create() warn: potential spectre
issue 'nl_table' [w] (local cap)
