Subject[PATCH 3.4 12/32] net: add BUG_ON if kernel advertises msg_namelen > sizeof(struct sockaddr_storage)
Date
3.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Hannes Frederic Sowa <hannes@stressinduktion.org>

[ Upstream commit 68c6beb373955da0886d8f4f5995b3922ceda4be ]

In that case it is probable that kernel code overwrote part of the
stack. So we should bail out loudly here.

The BUG_ON may be removed in future if we are sure all protocols are
conformant.
