Subject[PATCH 5.4 084/155] RDMA/nl: Do not permit empty devices names during RDMA_NLDEV_CMD_NEWLINK/SET
From: Jason Gunthorpe <>

commit 7aefa6237cfe4a6fcf06a8656eee988b36f8fefc upstream.

Empty device names cannot be added to sysfs and crash with:

kobject: (00000000f9de3792): attempted to be registered with empty name!

Prevent empty names when checking the name provided from userspace during
newlink and rename.
