Subject[PATCH 4.4 002/101] net: dont call strlen on non-terminated string in dev_set_alias()
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Alexander Potapenko <glider@google.com>


[ Upstream commit c28294b941232931fbd714099798eb7aa7e865d7 ]

KMSAN reported a use of uninitialized memory in dev_set_alias(),
which was caused by calling strlcpy() (which in turn called strlen())
on the user-supplied non-terminated string.
