Subject: [PATCH net-next] net: fix uninit-value in caif_seqpkt_sendmsg
Date: Thu, 15 Jul 2021 20:22:04 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

When nr_segs equal to zero in iovec_from_user, the object
msg->msg_iter.iov is uninit stack memory in caif_seqpkt_sendmsg
which is defined in ___sys_sendmsg. So we cann't just judge
msg->msg_iter.iov->base directlly. We can use nr_segs to judge
msg in caif_seqpkt_sendmsg whether has data buffers.

BUG: KMSAN: uninit-value in caif_seqpkt_sendmsg+0x693/0xf60 net/caif/caif_socket.c:542
