[PATCH 4.4 29/50] mac80211: fix use of uninitialised values in RX aggregation

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon Mar 14 2016 - 14:16:21 EST

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


From: Chris Bainbridge <chris.bainbridge@xxxxxxxxx>

commit f39ea2690bd61efec97622c48323f40ed6e16317 upstream.

Use kzalloc instead of kmalloc for struct tid_ampdu_rx to
initialize the "removed" field (all others are initialized
manually). That fixes:

UBSAN: Undefined behaviour in net/mac80211/rx.c:932:29

While at it, convert to use sizeof(*tid_agg_rx) instead.
