Coverity reported the following:

*** CID 1487394:  Insecure data handling  (TAINTED_SCALAR)
/drivers/net/wireless/intel/iwlwifi/fw/debugfs.c: 355 in _iwl_dbgfs_fw_dbg_domain_write()
349     					    size_t size, char *buf)
350     {
351     	return scnprintf(buf, size, "0x%08x\n",
352     			 fwrt->trans->dbg.domains_bitmap);
353     }
vvv     CID 1487394:  Insecure data handling  (TAINTED_SCALAR)
vvv     Passing tainted variable "buf" to a tainted sink.

357     void iwl_fwrt_dbgfs_register(struct iwl_fw_runtime *fwrt,
358     			    struct dentry *dbgfs_dir)
359     {

361     	FWRT_DEBUGFS_ADD_FILE(timestamp_marker, dbgfs_dir, 0200);
362     	FWRT_DEBUGFS_ADD_FILE(send_hcmd, dbgfs_dir, 0200);
363     	FWRT_DEBUGFS_ADD_FILE(fw_dbg_domain, dbgfs_dir, 0600);

If this is a false positive, please let us know so we can mark it as
such, or teach the Coverity rules to be smarter. If not, please make
sure fixes get into linux-next. :) For patches fixing this, please
include these lines (but double-check the "Fixes" first):
