SubjectPROBLEM: Using BPF_PROG_TEST_RUN with data_out != NULL is unsafe
Hello,

I’ve encountered an issue when using BPF_PROG_TEST_RUN and capturing the output.
The kernel copies data into user space without checking the length of
the destination buffer.

In bpf_test_finish(), size is the amount of data in the XDP buffer /
skb after the program is run. This can be larger than data_size_in due
to bpf_xdp_adjust_head() and friends.
bpf_test_finish doesn’t clamp size to data_size_out, which is what I
was expecting.

What is the correct way to use this interface?

Best,
Lorenz
