Hi everyone,

My apologies if this has already been reported in some capacity, I
searched the mailing list and patchwork but I didn't see anything.

With GCC 8.1.0, I am starting to see the following warnings from
Kconfig:

  CC    scripts/kconfig/zconf.tab.c
  LEX     scripts/kconfig/zconf.lex.c
  HOSTCC  scripts/kconfig/zconf.tab.o
In file included from scripts/kconfig/zconf.tab.c:2496:
scripts/kconfig/confdata.c: In function ‘conf_write’:
scripts/kconfig/confdata.c:748:22: warning: ‘%s’ directive writing likely 7 or more bytes into a region of size between 1 and 4097 [-Wformat-overflow=]
  sprintf(newname, "%s%s", dirname, basename);
                      ^~
scripts/kconfig/confdata.c:748:19: note: assuming directive output of 7 bytes
  sprintf(newname, "%s%s", dirname, basename);
                   ^~~~~~
scripts/kconfig/confdata.c:748:2: note: ‘sprintf’ output 1 or more bytes (assuming 4104) into a destination of size 4097
  sprintf(newname, "%s%s", dirname, basename);
  ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
scripts/kconfig/confdata.c:751:23: warning: ‘.tmpconfig.’ directive writing 11 bytes into a region of size between 1 and 4097 [-Wformat-overflow=]
   sprintf(tmpname, "%s.tmpconfig.%d", dirname, (int)getpid());
                       ^~~~~~~~~~~
scripts/kconfig/confdata.c:751:3: note: ‘sprintf’ output between 13 and 4119 bytes into a destination of size 4097
   sprintf(tmpname, "%s.tmpconfig.%d", dirname, (int)getpid());
   ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  HOSTCC  scripts/kconfig/conf.o
  HOSTLD  scripts/kconfig/conf

I am not sure if this is a false positive or not, otherwise I would have
sent a patch. I tested on the latest linux-next with Masahiro's for-next
branch, currently at commit 57282f7da50c ("Merge branch 'kconfig' into
for-next").

Thanks!
Nathan

I think you are the first reporter.

I think these are legitimate warnings.

A patch is welcome.
