Subject: [PATCH v3] pktgen: Fix invalid clone_skb override
Date: Mon,  2 Aug 2021 18:20:53 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210802182057.2199810-1-richardsonnick@google.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210802102100.5292367a@kicinski-fedora-pc1c0hjn.dhcp.thefacebook.com>

From: Nick Richardson <richardsonnick@google.com>

When the netif_receive xmit_mode is set, a line is supposed to set
clone_skb to a default 0 value. This line is made redundant due to a
preceding line that checks if clone_skb is more than zero and returns
-ENOTSUPP.

Only the positive case for clone_skb needs to be checked. It
is impossible for a user to set clone_skb to a negative number.
When a user passes a negative value for clone_skb, the num_arg()
function stops parsing at the first nonnumeric value.

For example: "clone_skb -200" would stop parsing at the
first char ('-') and return zero for the new clone_skb value.

The value read by num_arg() cannot be overflow-ed into the negative
range, since it is an unsigned long.

Remove redundant line that sets clone_skb to zero. If clone_skb is
equal to zero then set xmit_mode to netif_receive as usual and return
no error.
