Subject: [PATCH 4.9 68/74] strparser: Fix incorrect strp->need_bytes value.

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


From: Doron Roberts-Kedes <>

[ Upstream commit 9d0c75bf6e03d9bf80c55b0f677dc9b982958fd5 ]

strp_data_ready resets strp->need_bytes to 0 if strp_peek_len indicates
that the remainder of the message has been received. However,
do_strp_work does not reset strp->need_bytes to 0. If do_strp_work
completes a partial message, the value of strp->need_bytes will continue
to reflect the needed bytes of the previous message, causing
future invocations of strp_data_ready to return early if
strp->need_bytes is less than strp_peek_len. Resetting strp->need_bytes
to 0 in __strp_recv on handing a full message to the upper layer solves
this problem.

__strp_recv also calculates strp->need_bytes using stm->accum_len before
stm->accum_len has been incremented by cand_len. This can cause
strp->need_bytes to be equal to the full length of the message instead
of the full length minus the accumulated length. This, in turn, causes
strp_data_ready to return early, even when there is sufficient data to
complete the partial message. Incrementing stm->accum_len before using
it to calculate strp->need_bytes solves this problem.

Found while testing net/tls_sw recv path.
