Subject[PATCH 5.2 36/56] tipc: compat: allow tipc commands without arguments
Date
From: Taras Kondratiuk <takondra@cisco.com>

[ Upstream commit 4da5f0018eef4c0de31675b670c80e82e13e99d1 ]

Commit 2753ca5d9009 ("tipc: fix uninit-value in tipc_nl_compat_doit")
broke older tipc tools that use compat interface (e.g. tipc-config from
tipcutils package):

% tipc-config -p
operation not supported

The commit started to reject TIPC netlink compat messages that do not
have attributes. It is too restrictive because some of such messages are
valid (they don't need any arguments):

% grep 'tx none' include/uapi/linux/tipc_config.h
#define TIPC_CMD_NOOP 0x0000 /* tx none, rx none */
#define TIPC_CMD_GET_MEDIA_NAMES 0x0002 /* tx none, rx media_name(s) */
#define TIPC_CMD_GET_BEARER_NAMES 0x0003 /* tx none, rx bearer_name(s) */
#define TIPC_CMD_SHOW_PORTS 0x0006 /* tx none, rx ultra_string */
#define TIPC_CMD_GET_REMOTE_MNG 0x4003 /* tx none, rx unsigned */
#define TIPC_CMD_GET_MAX_PORTS 0x4004 /* tx none, rx unsigned */
#define TIPC_CMD_GET_NETID 0x400B /* tx none, rx unsigned */
#define TIPC_CMD_NOT_NET_ADMIN 0xC001 /* tx none, rx none */

This patch relaxes the original fix and rejects messages without
arguments only if such arguments are expected by a command (reg_type is
non zero).
