Subject: improve msg_control kernel vs user pointer handling
Date: Mon, 11 May 2020 13:59:10 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200511115913.1420836-1-hch@lst.de> (raw)

Hi Dave,

this series replace the msg_control in the kernel msghdr structure
with an anonymous union and separate fields for kernel vs user
pointers.  In addition to helping a bit with type safety and reducing
sparse warnings, this also allows to remove the set_fs() in
kernel_recvmsg, helping with an eventual entire removal of set_fs().
