[PATCH 4/4] ax.25: Remove the now superfluous sentinel elements from ctl_table array

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


From: Joel Granados <j.granados@xxxxxxxxxxx>

This commit comes at the tail end of a greater effort to remove the
empty elements at the end of the ctl_table arrays (sentinels) which will
reduce the overall build time size of the kernel and run time memory
bloat by ~64 bytes per sentinel (further information Link :

When we remove the sentinel from ax25_param_table a buffer overflow
shows its ugly head. The sentinel's data element used to be changed when
CONFIG_AX25_DAMA_SLAVE was not defined. This did not have any adverse
effects as we still stopped on the sentinel because of its null
procname. But now that we do not have the sentinel element, we are
careful to check ax25_param_table's size.
