[PATCH 1/8] net: validate MAC address directly in dev_set_mac_address()

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

Validate the given MAC address directly in dev_set_mac_address()
if a .ndo_validate_addr function is available before calling
the .ndo_set_mac_address function.

Changed .ndo_validate_addr to take a second parameter containing
a sockaddr struct to be checked instead of the net_device dev_addr.
The behaviour of .ndo_validate_addr is now: if the second parameter
is NULL the net_device->dev_addr gets validate, if != NULL
the given parameter/sockaddr gets validated instead.

Removed is_valid_ether_addr() check from eth_mac_addr() since
this is now done in dev_set_mac_address(). Adapted eth_validate_addr()
to the changes.
