Subject: [RESEND,net-next,PATCH v5 0/3] Fix inefficiences and rename nla_strlcpy

From: Francis Laniel <laniel_francis@...vacyrequired.com>

Hi.


I hope you are all fine and the same for your relatives.

This patch set answers to first three issues listed in:
https://github.com/KSPP/linux/issues/110

To sum up, the patch contributions are the following:
1. the first patch fixes an inefficiency where some bytes in dst were written
twice, one with 0 the other with src content.
2. The second one modifies nla_strlcpy to return the same value as strscpy,
i.e. number of bytes written or -E2BIG if src was truncated.
It also modifies code that calls nla_strlcpy and checks for its return value.
3. The third renames nla_strlcpy to nla_strscpy.

Unfortunately, I did not find how to create struct nlattr objects so I tested
my modifications on simple char* and with GDB using tc to get to
tcf_proto_check_kind.

If you see any way to improve the code or have any remark, feel free to comment.


Best regards and take care of yourselves.

Francis Laniel (3):
  Fix unefficient call to memset before memcpu in nla_strlcpy.
  Modify return value of nla_strlcpy to match that of strscpy.
  treewide: rename nla_strlcpy to nla_strscpy.
