Subject: [PATCH] trace-cmd: Fix SEGFAULT when no tsync_protos are supplied
Date: Wed, 3 Feb 2021 17:10:18 -0500
Message-ID: <20210203171018.5b82a0a7@gandalf.local.home> (raw)

From: "Steven Rostedt (VMware)" <>

The make_trace_resp() function takes in a tsync_proto string to add to the
message being sent. But if NULL is passed in, the call to strncpy() will

Just set it to a empty string, and pass that instead.
