[PATCH net-next] bpf: avoid copying junk bytes in bpf_get_current_comm()

From: Alexei Starovoitov
Date: Wed Mar 09 2016 - 23:02:44 EST

Lots of places in the kernel use memcpy(buf, comm, TASK_COMM_LEN); but
the result is typically passed to print("%s", buf) and extra bytes
after zero don't cause any harm.
In bpf the result of bpf_get_current_comm() is used as the part of
map key and was causing spurious hash map mismatches.
Use strlcpy() to guarantee zero-terminated string.
bpf verifier checks that output buffer is zero-initialized,
so even for short task names the output buffer don't have junk bytes.
Note it's not a security concern, since kprobe+bpf is root only.

Fixes: ffeedafbf023 ("bpf: introduce current->pid, tgid, uid, gid, comm accessors")

Targeting net-next, since it's too late for net.
I think it makes sense for stable as well.
