Subject[PATCH 4.9 32/75] RDS: Check cmsg_len before dereferencing CMSG_DATA
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Avinash Repaka <>

[ Upstream commit 14e138a86f6347c6199f610576d2e11c03bec5f0 ]

RDS currently doesn't check if the length of the control message is
large enough to hold the required data, before dereferencing the control
message data. This results in following crash:

To fix this, we verify that the cmsg_len is large enough to hold the
data to be read, before proceeding further.
