Subject: [PATCH net 1/1] net: ppp: fix creating PPP pass and active filters

From: Christoph Schulz <develop@...stov.de>

Commit 568f194e8bd16c353ad50f9ab95d98b20578a39d ("net: ppp: use
sk_unattached_filter api") inadvertently changed the logic when setting
PPP pass and active filters. This applies to both the generic PPP subsystem
implemented by drivers/net/ppp/ppp_generic.c and the ISDN PPP subsystem
implemented by drivers/isdn/i4l/isdn_ppp.c. The original code in ppp_ioctl()
(or isdn_ppp_ioctl(), resp.) handling PPPIOCSPASS and PPPIOCSACTIVE allowed to
remove a pass/active filter previously set by using a filter of length zero.
However, with the new code this is not possible anymore as this case is not
explicitly checked for, which leads to passing NULL as a filter to
sk_unattached_filter_create(). This results in returning EINVAL to the caller.

Additionally, the variables ppp->pass_filter and ppp->active_filter (or
is->pass_filter and is->active_filter, resp.) are not reset to NULL, although
the filters they point to may have been destroyed by
sk_unattached_filter_destroy(), so in this EINVAL case dangling pointers are
left behind (provided the pointers were previously non-NULL).

This patch corrects both problems by checking whether the filter passed is
empty or non-empty, and prevents sk_unattached_filter_create() from being
called in the first case. Moreover, the pointers are always reset to NULL
as soon as sk_unattached_filter_destroy() returns.
