Subject: [PATCH 2/27] drivers/net: Use memdup_user

From: Julia Lawall <julia@...u.dk>

Use memdup_user when user data is immediately copied into the
allocated region.

The semantic patch that makes this change is as follows:
(http://coccinelle.lip6.fr/)

// <smpl>
@@
expression from,to,size,flag;
position p;
identifier l1,l2;
@@

-  to = \(kmalloc@p\|kzalloc@p\)(size,flag);
+  to = memdup_user(from,size);
   if (
-      to==NULL
+      IS_ERR(to)
                 || ...) {
   <+... when != goto l1;
-  -ENOMEM
+  PTR_ERR(to)
   ...+>
   }
-  if (copy_from_user(to, from, size) != 0) {
-    <+... when != goto l2;
-    -EFAULT
-    ...+>
-  }
// </smpl>
