Hello,

While compiling Linux with -Wunused-but-set-parameter, gcc reported a
warning in st21nfca_get_iso14443_3_uid function, about "gate" being set
but not used [1].  By looking at the code, it is clear that "gate =
uid_skb->data;" does nothing useful.  The function is only called once,
by st21nfca_hci_target_from_gate [2], which uses the content of the uid
array which is NOT initialized by st21nfca_get_iso14443_3_uid as the
source of a memcpy [3].

My understanding of the code is that "gate = uid_skb->data;" in
st21nfca_get_iso14443_3_uid should be changed to "memcpy(gate,
uid_skb->data, uid_skb->len);".

I'm new to the NFC subsystem so I can be wrong, in which case please
tell me what I missed in my analysis.  Please Cc me when replying as I
am not subscribed to the mailing lists.

Thanks,

Nicolas

st21nfca_get_iso14443_3_uid() does not correctly copy the uid from
uid_skb->data to its gate parameter.  "gate = uid_skb->data;" only puts
a pointer to uid_skb->data to the local variable gate.  This means that
in st21nfca_hci_target_from_gate() the content of "u8
uid[NFC_NFCID1_MAXSIZE]" local variable is never initialized before
being used in memcpy(target->nfcid1, uid, len).

Fix this by replacing the local variable assignment with a memcpy.

This was found by compiling Linux with "gcc -Wunused-but-set-parameter".

As I did not get any reply from https://lkml.org/lkml/2015/2/28/25 and
got confirmation by other people that this may be a real bug, I am now
sending a patch to fix it.

Hi Nicolas,

Sorry for the late reply.

I am planning to include your patch with a Acked-by in a future patch serie.

Thanks a lot
Best Regards
Christophe
