Subject[PATCH 3.4 14/32] net: clamp ->msg_namelen instead of returning an error
Date
3.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Dan Carpenter <dan.carpenter@oracle.com>

[ Upstream commit db31c55a6fb245fdbb752a2ca4aefec89afabb06 ]

If kmsg->msg_namelen > sizeof(struct sockaddr_storage) then in the
original code that would lead to memory corruption in the kernel if you
had audit configured. If you didn't have audit configured it was
harmless.

There are some programs such as beta versions of Ruby which use too
large of a buffer and returning an error code breaks them. We should
clamp the ->msg_namelen value instead.

Fixes: 1661bf364ae9 ("net: heap overflow in __audit_sockaddr()")
