Subject: [PATCH] binder: Set end of SG buffer area properly.
Date: Tue,  9 Jul 2019 13:09:23 +0200
Message-ID: <> (raw)

In case the target node requests a security context, the
extra_buffers_size is increased with the size of the security context.
But, that size is not available for use by regular scatter-gather
buffers; make sure the ending of that buffer is marked correctly.

Fixes: ec74136ded79 ("binder: create node flag to request sender's
security context")
