Subject: [net v3] drivers/net/wan/lapbether: Use needed_headroom instead of hard_header_len
Date: Sun,  2 Aug 2020 12:50:46 -0700
Message-ID: <20200802195046.402539-1-xie.he.0141@gmail.com> (raw)

In net/packet/af_packet.c, the function packet_snd first reserves a
headroom of length (dev->hard_header_len + dev->needed_headroom).
Then if the socket is a SOCK_DGRAM socket, it calls dev_hard_header,
which calls dev->header_ops->create, to create the link layer header.
If the socket is a SOCK_RAW socket, it "un-reserves" a headroom of
length (dev->hard_header_len), and assumes the user to provide the
appropriate link layer header.

So according to the logic of af_packet.c, dev->hard_header_len should
be the length of the header that would be created by
dev->header_ops->create.

However, this driver doesn't provide dev->header_ops, so logically
dev->hard_header_len should be 0.

So we should use dev->needed_headroom instead of dev->hard_header_len
to request necessary headroom to be allocated.

This change fixes kernel panic when this driver is used with AF_PACKET
SOCK_RAW sockets. Call stack when panic:

Additional change:
When sending, check skb->len to ensure the 1-byte pseudo header is
present before reading it.
