Subject: [PATCH 9/9] netfilter: ipset: avoid null deref when IPSET_ATTR_LINENO is present

From: Florian Westphal <>

The set uadt functions assume lineno is never NULL, but it is in
case of ip_set_utest().

syzkaller managed to generate a netlink message that calls this with
LINENO attr present:

general protection fault: 0000 [#1] PREEMPT SMP KASAN
RIP: 0010:hash_mac4_uadt+0x1bc/0x470 net/netfilter/ipset/ip_set_hash_mac.c:104
Call Trace:
 ip_set_utest+0x55b/0x890 net/netfilter/ipset/ip_set_core.c:1867
 nfnetlink_rcv_msg+0xcf2/0xfb0 net/netfilter/nfnetlink.c:229
 netlink_rcv_skb+0x177/0x450 net/netlink/af_netlink.c:2477
 nfnetlink_rcv+0x1ba/0x460 net/netfilter/nfnetlink.c:563

pass a dummy lineno storage, its easier than patching all set

This seems to be a day-0 bug.
