Subject: [PATCH net-next v6 0/6] remove compat_alloc_user_space()
Date: Thu, 22 Jul 2021 16:28:57 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210722142903.213084-1-arnd@kernel.org> (raw)

From: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de>

This is the fifth version of my series, now spanning four patches
instead of two, with a new approach for handling struct ifreq
compatibility after I realized that my earlier approach introduces
additional problems.

The idea here is to always push down the compat conversion
deeper into the call stack: rather than pretending to be
native mode with a modified copy of the original data on
the user space stack, have the code that actually works on
the data understand the difference between native and compat
versions.

I have spent a long time looking at all drivers that implement
an ndo_do_ioctl callback to verify that my assumptions are
correct. This has led to a series of ~30 additional patches
that I am not including here but will post separately, fixing
a number of bugs in SIOCDEVPRIVATE ioctls, removing dead
code, and splitting ndo_do_ioctl into multiple new ndo callbacks
for private and ethernet specific commands.
