Subject: [PATCH] net: llc: use correct size for sysctl timeout entries
Date: Fri, 23 Jan 2015 20:47:00 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1422064020-22080-1-git-send-email-sasha.levin@oracle.com> (raw)

The timeout entries are sizeof(int) rather than sizeof(long), which
means that when they were getting read we'd also leak kernel memory
to userspace along with the timeout values.
