Subject: [dpdk-stable] [PATCH] net/mlx5: fix unlimited scan in switch info detection
Date: Tue, 21 Jul 2020 12:02:32 +0000
Message-ID: <> (raw)

In mlx5_sysfs_switch_info function, the driver gets switch information
associated with network interface.

The driver writes the port name into buffer and translates it.
However, when it writes the name, it does not limit writing to the
buffer size.

Limit writing to the size of the buffer.

Fixes: 1256805dd54d ("net/mlx5: move Linux-specific functions")
