[PATCH 4.17 09/97] bpf, sockmap: fix bpf_tcp_sendmsg sock error handling

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman

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


From: Daniel Borkmann <daniel@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 5121700b346b6160ccc9411194e3f1f417c340d1 upstream.

While working on bpf_tcp_sendmsg() code, I noticed that when a
sk->sk_err is set we error out with err = sk->sk_err. However
this is problematic since sk->sk_err is a positive error value
and therefore we will neither go into sk_stream_error() nor will
we report an error back to user space. I had this case with EPIPE
and user space was thinking sendmsg() succeeded since EPIPE is
a positive value, thinking we submitted 32 bytes. Fix it by
negating the sk->sk_err value.
