Subject[PATCH 4.17 023/101] net/mlx5: Fix incorrect raw command length parsing
Date
4.17-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Alex Vesker <valex@mellanox.com>

[ Upstream commit 603b7bcff824740500ddfa001d7a7168b0b38542 ]

The NULL character was not set correctly for the string containing
the command length, this caused failures reading the output of the
command due to a random length. The fix is to initialize the output
length string.

Fixes: e126ba97dba9 ("mlx5: Add driver for Mellanox Connect-IB adapters")
