    drivers/net: Use memdup_user · b23d00e9
    Julia Lawall authored
    Use memdup_user when user data is immediately copied into the
    allocated region.
    
    The semantic patch that makes this change is as follows:

    )
    
    // <smpl>
    @@
    expression from,to,size,flag;

    identifier l1,l2;

    -  to = \(kmalloc@p\|kzalloc@p\)(size,flag);
    +  to = memdup_user(from,size);
       if (
    -      to==NULL
    +      IS_ERR(to)
                     || ...) {
       <+... when != goto l1;
    -  -ENOMEM
    +  PTR_ERR(to)
       ...+>
       }
    -  if (copy_from_user(to, from, size) != 0) {
    -    <+... when != goto l2;
    -    -EFAULT
