Subject: [PATCH] memfd_secret: use unsigned int rather than long as syscall flags type
Date: Wed, 31 Mar 2021 17:23:45 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210331142345.27532-1-rppt@kernel.org> (raw)

From: Mike Rapoport <rppt@linux.ibm.com>

Yuri Norov says:

  If parameter size is the same for native and compat ABIs, we may
  wire a syscall made by compat client to native handler. This is
  true for unsigned int, but not true for unsigned long or pointer.

  That's why I suggest using unsigned int and so avoid creating compat
  entry point.

Use unsigned int as the type of the flags parameter in memfd_secret()
system call.

Signed-off-by: Mike Rapoport <rppt@linux.ibm.com>

The patch is vs v5.12-rc5-mmots-2021-03-30-23, I'd appreciate if it would
be added as a fixup to the memfd_secret series.
