Subject[PATCH 5.10 052/157] net/qrtr: fix __netdev_alloc_skb call
From: Pavel Skripkin <>

commit 093b036aa94e01a0bea31a38d7f0ee28a2749023 upstream.

syzbot found WARNING in __alloc_pages_nodemask()[1] when order >= MAX_ORDER.
It was caused by a huge length value passed from userspace to qrtr_tun_write_iter(),
which tries to allocate skb. Since the value comes from the untrusted source
there is no need to raise a warning in __alloc_pages_nodemask().
