Subject: Re: [PATCH] net: bonding: Use strscpy() instead of
 manually-truncated strncpy()

                strncpy(ifr.ifr_name, slave_dev->name, IFNAMSIZ);

I couldn't tell if this was a non-string, if it needed padding, etc. The
one I fixed below appears to be null-terminated? (Though now that I look
at it, perhaps it should be using strscpy_pad().)

And there are a bunch of other manual truncations in the kernel on
ifr_name:

$ git grep ifr_name | grep 'IFNAMSIZ.*=.*0'
drivers/net/tun.c:              ifr.ifr_name[IFNAMSIZ-1] = '\0';
net/core/dev_ioctl.c:   ifr->ifr_name[IFNAMSIZ-1] = 0;
net/core/dev_ioctl.c:   ifr->ifr_name[IFNAMSIZ-1] = 0;
net/decnet/dn_dev.c:    ifr->ifr_name[IFNAMSIZ-1] = 0;
net/ieee802154/socket.c:        ifr.ifr_name[IFNAMSIZ-1] = 0;
net/ipv4/devinet.c:     ifr->ifr_name[IFNAMSIZ - 1] = 0;
net/wireless/wext-core.c:       iwr.ifr_name[IFNAMSIZ-1] = 0;
tools/lib/bpf/xsk.c:    ifr.ifr_name[IFNAMSIZ - 1] = '\0';

And given the copy_to_user() that might happen, I think this should
absolutely be strscpy_pad(). I will send a v2...
