[PATCH] autofs: use flexible array in ioctl structure

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


From: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@xxxxxxxx>

Commit df8fc4e934c1 ("kbuild: Enable -fstrict-flex-arrays=3") introduced a warning
for the autofs_dev_ioctl structure:

In function 'check_name',
    inlined from 'validate_dev_ioctl' at fs/autofs/dev-ioctl.c:131:9,
    inlined from '_autofs_dev_ioctl' at fs/autofs/dev-ioctl.c:624:8:
fs/autofs/dev-ioctl.c:33:14: error: 'strchr' reading 1 or more bytes from a region of size 0 [-Werror=stringop-overread]
   33 |         if (!strchr(name, '/'))
      |              ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

                 from fs/autofs/dev-ioctl.c:14:
include/uapi/linux/auto_dev-ioctl.h: In function '_autofs_dev_ioctl':
include/uapi/linux/auto_dev-ioctl.h:112:14: note: source object 'path' of size 0

This is easily fixed by changing the gnu 0-length array into a c99
flexible array. Since this is a uapi structure, we have to be careful
about possible regressions but this one should be fine as they are
equivalent here. While it would break building with ancient gcc versions
that predate c99, it helps building with --std=c99 and -Wpedantic builds
in user space, as well as non-gnu compilers. This means we probably
also want it fixed in stable kernels.
