Hello Dan,

The function rx_helper() in bh.c already do some sanity checks received data:

    60          WARN(read_len < 4, "corrupted read");
    [...]
    92          } else {
    93                  computed_len = round_up(hif->len, 2);
    94          }
    95          if (computed_len != read_len) {
    96                  dev_err(wdev->dev, "inconsistent message length: %zu != %zu\n",
    97                          computed_len, read_len);
    98                  print_hex_dump(KERN_INFO, "hif: ", DUMP_PREFIX_OFFSET, 16, 1,
    99                                 hif, read_len, true);
   100                  goto err;
   101          }


However, I can improve this code:
   - "4" should be replaced by "sizeof(struct hif_msg)" for readability 
   - hif->len is tested through computed_len, but I am not sure to be able
     to prove that it covers all cases
   - rx_helper() should recover the error if read_len < 4

I add that on my TODO list.
