Subject: CVE-2023-52626: net/mlx5e: Fix operation precedence bug in port timestamping napi_poll context

Description
===========

In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved:

net/mlx5e: Fix operation precedence bug in port timestamping napi_poll context

Indirection (*) is of lower precedence than postfix increment (++). Logic
in napi_poll context would cause an out-of-bound read by first increment
the pointer address by byte address space and then dereference the value.
Rather, the intended logic was to dereference first and then increment the
underlying value.

The Linux kernel CVE team has assigned CVE-2023-52626 to this issue.


Affected and fixed versions
===========================

	Issue introduced in 6.6.3 with commit e5d30f7da357 and fixed in 6.6.15 with commit 40e0d0746390

Affected files
==============

The file(s) affected by this issue are:
	drivers/net/ethernet/mellanox/mlx5/core/en/ptp.c


Mitigation
==========

The Linux kernel CVE team recommends that you update to the latest
stable kernel version for this, and many other bugfixes.  Individual
changes are never tested alone, but rather are part of a larger kernel
release.  Cherry-picking individual commits is not recommended or
supported by the Linux kernel community at all.  If however, updating to
the latest release is impossible, the individual changes to resolve this
issue can be found at these commits:
	https://git.kernel.org/stable/c/40e0d0746390c5b0c31144f4f1688d72f3f8d790
