[PATCH v6 01/16] xattr: Remove unnecessary NULL attribute name check

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


When NULL is passed to one of the xattr system calls as the attribute
name, copying that name from user space already fails with -EFAULT;
xattr_resolve_name is never called with a NULL attribute name.
