[PATCH 3.19.y-ckt 191/196] netlink: not trim skb for mmaped socket when dump

From: Kamal Mostafa
Date: Tue Mar 08 2016 - 19:40:05 EST

3.19.8-ckt16 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Ken-ichirou MATSUZAWA <chamaken@xxxxxxxxx>

commit aa3a022094fac7f6e48050e139fa8a5a2e3265ce upstream.

We should not trim skb for mmaped socket since its buf size is fixed
and userspace will read as frame which data equals head. mmaped
socket will not call recvmsg, means max_recvmsg_len is 0,
skb_reserve was not called before commit: db65a3aaf29e.

Fixes: db65a3aaf29e (netlink: Trim skb to alloc size to avoid MSG_TRUNC)
