Subject: Re: [PATCH 1/1] dccp: allow probing of CCID-array length

From: Gerrit Renker <>
Date: Mon, 8 Feb 2010 07:20:28 +0100

> This fixes a problem in the DCCP getsockopt() API: currently there is no way
> for a user to a priori know the number of built-in CCIDs, other than trying
> DCCP_SOCKOPT_AVAILABLE_CCIDS in a loop, incrementing the option length until
> EINVAL is no longer returned.
> This patch truncates the array to the user-provided length. No copy is made
> when the length is <= 0.
> Due to the length restriction in do_dccp_getsockopt() to sizeof(int), the
> minimum array length remains 4, which is a reasonable default (only 3
> CCIDs, CCID-2..4, are currently defined).
> Signed-off-by: Gerrit Renker <>

Applied to net-next-2.6, thanks Gerrit.
