Subject: Re: [PATCH net] net: DCB: Validate DCB_ATTR_DCB_BUFFER argument

From: Petr Machata <>
Date: Thu, 10 Sep 2020 14:09:05 +0200

> The parameter passed via DCB_ATTR_DCB_BUFFER is a struct dcbnl_buffer. The
> field prio2buffer is an array of IEEE_8021Q_MAX_PRIORITIES bytes, where
> each value is a number of a buffer to direct that priority's traffic to.
> That value is however never validated to lie within the bounds set by

> mlx5 (maintainers CCd), and that does not do any validation either, in
> particual allowing incorrect configuration if the prio2buffer value does
> not fit into 4 bits.
> Instead of offloading the need to validate the buffer index to drivers, do
> it right there in core, and bounce the request if the value is too large.
