Subject[PATCH 4.9 101/137] proc/sysctl: fix return error for proc_doulongvec_minmax()
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

[ Upstream commit 09be178400829dddc1189b50a7888495dd26aa84 ]

If the number of input parameters is less than the total parameters, an
EINVAL error will be returned.

For example, we use proc_doulongvec_minmax to pass up to two parameters
with kern_table:

{
.procname = "monitor_signals",
.data = &monitor_sigs,
.maxlen = 2*sizeof(unsigned long),
.mode = 0644,
.proc_handler = proc_doulongvec_minmax,
},

Reproduce:

When passing two parameters, it's work normal. But passing only one
parameter, an error "Invalid argument"(EINVAL) is returned.

[root@cl150 ~]# echo 1 2 > /proc/sys/kernel/monitor_signals
[root@cl150 ~]# cat /proc/sys/kernel/monitor_signals
1 2
[root@cl150 ~]# echo 3 > /proc/sys/kernel/monitor_signals
-bash: echo: write error: Invalid argument
[root@cl150 ~]# echo $?
1
[root@cl150 ~]# cat /proc/sys/kernel/monitor_signals
3 2
[root@cl150 ~]#

The following is the result after apply this patch. No error is
returned when the number of input parameters is less than the total
parameters.

[root@cl150 ~]# echo 1 2 > /proc/sys/kernel/monitor_signals
[root@cl150 ~]# cat /proc/sys/kernel/monitor_signals
1 2
[root@cl150 ~]# echo 3 > /proc/sys/kernel/monitor_signals
[root@cl150 ~]# echo $?
0
[root@cl150 ~]# cat /proc/sys/kernel/monitor_signals
3 2
[root@cl150 ~]#

There are three processing functions dealing with digital parameters,
__do_proc_dointvec/__do_proc_douintvec/__do_proc_doulongvec_minmax.

This patch deals with __do_proc_doulongvec_minmax, just as
__do_proc_dointvec does, adding a check for parameters 'left'. In
__do_proc_douintvec, its code implementation explicitly does not support
multiple inputs.

static int __do_proc_douintvec(...){
...
/*
* Arrays are not supported, keep this simple. *Do not* add
* support for them.
*/
if (vleft != 1) {
*lenp = 0;
return -EINVAL;
}
...
}

So, just __do_proc_doulongvec_minmax has the problem. And most use of
proc_doulongvec_minmax/proc_doulongvec_ms_jiffies_minmax just have one
parameter.
