[PATCH 4.2 15/61] sctp: translate host order to network order when setting a hmacid

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Sat Dec 12 2015 - 15:15:13 EST

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


From: lucien <lucien.xin@xxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit ed5a377d87dc4c87fb3e1f7f698cba38cd893103 ]

now sctp auth cannot work well when setting a hmacid manually, which
is caused by that we didn't use the network order for hmacid, so fix
it by adding the transformation in sctp_auth_ep_set_hmacs.

even we set hmacid with the network order in userspace, it still
can't work, because of this condition in sctp_auth_ep_set_hmacs():


so this wasn't working before and thus it won't break compatibility.
