Subject: Re: [PATCH net] smc: fix out of bound access in smc_nl_get_sys_info()

Thank you Jakub,

this patch solves the out of bounds access due to snprintf() copying size bytes first
and overwriting the last byte with null afterwards.
We will include your patch in our next series for the net tree soon.
