SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/1] i2c: dev: check i2c_msg len before memdup_user() to prevent ZERO_SIZE_PTR deref

You're saying that

memdup_user(ptr, 0)

reads from *ptr? I'd say this is a bug in memdup_user, not its user.

If however the problem only happens later in

if (msgs[i].flags & I2C_M_RECV_LEN) {
if (!(msgs[i].flags & I2C_M_RD) || msgs[i].buf[0] < 1 || ...)

Your commit log is wrong (and I think the patch, too).

Best regards
