[Qemu-devel] [PATCH 0/2] linux-user: Fix length calculations in host_to_target_cmsg()

Posted by Peter Maydell 44 weeks ago
This patchset fixes this bug:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/qemu/+bug/1701808

where we were getting our message length calculations in
host_to_target_cmsg() wrong and could thus overwrite the end of the
guest buffer when we tried to fill it with the results of a
recvmsg().

Patch 1 is the bugfix; patch 2 is a minor cleanup which removes some
unnecessary and confusing alignment arithmetic and brings us into
alignment with what the kernel currently does.

thanks
