SubjectRe: [PATCH] net/bpfilter: fix dprintf usage for logging into /dev/kmsg
From: Bruno Meneguele <>
Date: Thu, 12 Mar 2020 17:12:40 -0300

> The bpfilter UMH code was recently changed to log its informative messages to
> /dev/kmsg, however this interface doesn't support SEEK_CUR yet, used by
> dprintf(). As result dprintf() returns -EINVAL and doesn't log anything.
> Although there already had some discussions about supporting SEEK_CUR into
> /dev/kmsg in the past, it wasn't concluded. Considering the only
> user of that interface from userspace perspective inside the kernel is the
> bpfilter UMH (userspace) module it's better to correct it here instead of
> waiting a conclusion on the interface changes.
