[PATCH 4.4 09/91] Btrfs: ensure path name is null terminated at btrfs_control_ioctl

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman

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


From: Filipe Manana <fdmanana@xxxxxxxx>

commit f505754fd6599230371cb01b9332754ddc104be1 upstream.

We were using the path name received from user space without checking that
it is null terminated. While btrfs-progs is well behaved and does proper
validation and null termination, someone could call the ioctl and pass
a non-null terminated patch, leading to buffer overrun problems in the
kernel. The ioctl is protected by CAP_SYS_ADMIN.

So just set the last byte of the path to a null character, similar to what
we do in other ioctls (add/remove/resize device, snapshot creation, etc).
