[RFC 0/4] Switching ARC to optimized generic strncpy_from_user

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



This came up when trying to move ARC over to generic word-at-a-time

 - 1/4 is a trivial fix (and needed for ARC switch)
 - 2/4 is mucking with internals hence the RFC. I could very likely be
   overlooking some possible DoS / exploit issues and apologies in advance
   if thats the case but I felt like sharing it anyways to see what
   others think.
 - 3/4, 4/4 are ARC changes to remove the existing ARC version and
   switch to generic (needs 1/4).


Vineet Gupta (4):
  asm-generic/uaccess: don't define inline functions if noinline lib/*
    in use
  lib/strncpy_from_user: Remove redundant user space pointer range check
  ARC: uaccess: remove noinline variants of __strncpy_from_user() and
  ARC: uaccess: use optimized generic __strnlen_user/__strncpy_from_user
