[PATCH 4.4 131/192] [PATCH 135/135] tipc: fix nl compat regression for link statistics

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon Sep 12 2016 - 13:28:43 EST

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


[ Upstream commit 55e77a3e8297581c919b45adcc4d0815b69afa84 ]

Fix incorrect use of nla_strlcpy() where the first NLA_HDRLEN bytes
of the link name where left out.

Making the output of tipc-config -ls look something like:
Link statistics:

Also, for the record, the patch that introduce this regression
claims "Sending the whole object out can cause a leak". Which isn't
very likely as this is a compat layer, where the data we are parsing
is generated by us and we know the string to be NULL terminated. But
you can of course never be to secure.
