Commit Message

Kees Cook Sept. 22, 2022, 3:10 a.m. UTC
With skbuff's post-allocation use of ksize() rearranged to use
kmalloc_size_round() prior to allocation, the compiler can correctly
reason about the size of these allocations. The prior mismatch had caused
buffer overflow mitigations to erroneously fire under CONFIG_UBSAN_BOUNDS,
requiring a partial revert of the __alloc_size attributes. Restore the
attribute that had been removed in commit 93dd04ab0b2b ("slab: remove
__alloc_size attribute from __kmalloc_track_caller").
