Subject[PATCH 4.14 060/186] ppp: ensure minimum packet size in ppp_write()
Date
From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com>

[ Upstream commit 44073187990d5629804ce0627525f6ea5cfef171 ]

It seems pretty clear ppp layer assumed user space
would always be kind to provide enough data
in their write() to a ppp device.

This patch makes sure user provides at least
2 bytes.

It adds PPP_PROTO_LEN macro that could replace
in net-next many occurrences of hard-coded 2 value.

I replaced only one occurrence to ease backports
to stable kernels.

The bug manifests in the following report:
