[PATCH 4.12 06/43] ANDROID: binder: add padding to binder_fd_array_object.

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Fri Sep 08 2017 - 09:22:41 EST

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


From: Martijn Coenen <maco@xxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 5cdcf4c6a638591ec0e98c57404a19e7f9997567 upstream.

binder_fd_array_object starts with a 4-byte header,
followed by a few fields that are 8 bytes when

This can cause alignment issues in a 64-bit kernel
with a 32-bit userspace, as on x86_32 an 8-byte primitive
may be aligned to a 4-byte address. Pad with a __u32
to fix this.
