Subject[PATCH 5.15 080/262] SUNRPC: Fix sockaddr handling in the svc_xprt_create_error trace point
From: Chuck Lever <>

[ Upstream commit dc6c6fb3d639756a532bcc47d4a9bf9f3965881b ]

While testing, I got an unexpected KASAN splat:

Jan 08 13:50:27 kernel: BUG: KASAN: stack-out-of-bounds in trace_event_raw_event_svc_xprt_create_err+0x190/0x210 [sunrpc]
Jan 08 13:50:27 kernel: Read of size 28 at addr ffffc9000008f728 by task mount.nfs/4628

The memcpy() in the TP_fast_assign section of this trace point
copies the size of the destination buffer in order that the buffer
won't be overrun.

In other similar trace points, the source buffer for this memcpy is
a "struct sockaddr_storage" so the actual length of the source
buffer is always long enough to prevent the memcpy from reading
uninitialized or unallocated memory.

However, for this trace point, the source buffer can be as small as
a "struct sockaddr_in". For AF_INET sockaddrs, the memcpy() reads
memory that follows the source buffer, which is not always valid

To avoid copying past the end of the passed-in sockaddr, make the
source address's length available to the memcpy(). It would be a
little nicer if the tracing infrastructure was more friendly about
storing socket addresses that are not AF_INET, but I could not find
a way to make printk("%pIS") work with a dynamic array.
