Subject[PATCH 5.4 041/135] staging: rtl8723bs: Fix potential overuse of kernel memory
Date
From: Larry Finger <Larry.Finger@lwfinger.net>

commit 23954cb078febfc63a755301fe77e06bccdb4d2a upstream.

In routine wpa_supplicant_ioctl(), the user-controlled p->length is
checked to be at least the size of struct ieee_param size, but the code
does not detect the case where p->length is greater than the size
of the struct, thus a malicious user could be wasting kernel memory.
Fixes commit 554c0a3abf216 ("staging: Add rtl8723bs sdio wifi driver").
