Subject[PATCH 4.9 05/17] netlink: Do not subscribe to non-existent groups
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Dmitry Safonov <dima@arista.com>

[ Upstream commit 7acf9d4237c46894e0fa0492dd96314a41742e84 ]

Make ABI more strict about subscribing to group > ngroups.
Code doesn't check for that and it looks bogus.
(one can subscribe to non-existing group)
Still, it's possible to bind() to all possible groups with (-1)
