I have reviewed the code in a less totally lazy way and your patch is
correct.

Reviewed-by: Dan Carpenter <dan.carpenter@oracle.com>

The bug is harmless, though. We copy over the list pointers with user
data and then immediately write the correct data to it.

It should probably be a static checker warning when we copy to non
__user tagged pointers. I think someone was adding this to Sparse but I
should probably add it to Smatch as well.

regards,
dan carpenter
