BTW... can we expect msf->imsf_numsrc to be zero at some point in the following
pieces of code?

net/ipv4/igmp.c:
2553         copycount = count < msf->imsf_numsrc ? count : msf->imsf_numsrc;
2554         len = copycount * sizeof(psl->sl_addr[0]);
2555         msf->imsf_numsrc = count;
2556         if (put_user(IP_MSFILTER_SIZE(copycount), optlen) ||
2557             copy_to_user(optval, msf, IP_MSFILTER_SIZE(0))) {
2558                 return -EFAULT;
2559         }

net/ipv4/ip_sockglue.c:
1228         case IP_MSFILTER:
1229         {
1230                 struct ip_msfilter *msf;
1231
1232                 if (optlen < IP_MSFILTER_SIZE(0))
1233                         goto e_inval;
1234                 if (optlen > sysctl_optmem_max) {
1235                         err = -ENOBUFS;
1236                         break;
1237                 }
1238                 msf = memdup_sockptr(optval, optlen);
1239                 if (IS_ERR(msf)) {

			...

1250                 if (IP_MSFILTER_SIZE(msf->imsf_numsrc) > optlen) {
1251                         kfree(msf);
1252                         err = -EINVAL;
1253                         break;
1254                 }
1255                 err = ip_mc_msfilter(sk, msf, 0);
1256                 kfree(msf);
1257                 break;
1258         }

Thanks
