Subject: [PATCH] lib: Add might_fault() to strncpy_from_user.
Date: Wed, 15 Apr 2020 00:57:05 +0200
Message-ID: <20200414225705.255711-1-kpsingh@chromium.org> (raw)

From: KP Singh <kpsingh@google.com>

When updating a piece of broken logic from using get_user to
strncpy_from_user, we noticed that a warning which is expected when
calling a function that might fault from an atomic context with
pagefaults enabled disappeared.

Not having this warning in place can lead to calling strncpy_from_user
from an atomic context and eventually kernel crashes/stack corruption.
