Subject[PATCH 5.4 186/191] ipv6/addrconf: only check invalid header values when NETLINK_F_STRICT_CHK is set
Date
From: Hangbin Liu <liuhangbin@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit 2beb6d2901a3f73106485d560c49981144aeacb1 ]

In commit 4b1373de73a3 ("net: ipv6: addr: perform strict checks also for
doit handlers") we add strict check for inet6_rtm_getaddr(). But we did
the invalid header values check before checking if NETLINK_F_STRICT_CHK
is set. This may break backwards compatibility if user already set the
ifm->ifa_prefixlen, ifm->ifa_flags, ifm->ifa_scope in their netlink code.

I didn't move the nlmsg_len check because I thought it's a valid check.
