Subject[PATCH] netlink: make sure nladdr has correct size in netlink_connect()
Date
KMSAN reports use of uninitialized memory in the case when |alen| is
smaller than sizeof(struct sockaddr_nl), and therefore |nladdr| isn't
fully copied from the userspace.

Signed-off-by: Alexander Potapenko <glider@google.com>
Fixes: 1da177e4c3f41524 ("Linux-2.6.12-rc2")
