Subject: [PATCH 4.4 10/28] tun: call dev_get_valid_name() before register_netdevice()
Date: Thu, 16 Nov 2017 18:42:28 +0100
Message-ID: <20171116174139.134317483@linuxfoundation.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20171116174138.714641106@linuxfoundation.org>

4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Cong Wang <xiyou.wangcong@gmail.com>


[ Upstream commit 0ad646c81b2182f7fa67ec0c8c825e0ee165696d ]

register_netdevice() could fail early when we have an invalid
dev name, in which case ->ndo_uninit() is not called. For tun
device, this is a problem because a timer etc. are already
initialized and it expects ->ndo_uninit() to clean them up.

We could move these initializations into a ->ndo_init() so
that register_netdevice() knows better, however this is still
complicated due to the logic in tun_detach().

Therefore, I choose to just call dev_get_valid_name() before
register_netdevice(), which is quicker and much easier to audit.
And for this specific case, it is already enough.
