Assuming that functions like tpm_buf_init() are the top-level API
being defined in this patch, shouldn't it check if buf is valid
before passing into the internal functions like __tpm_buf_init(buf)
(maybe WARN()/BUG_ON()?). Or does __tpm_buf_init(buf) do this check?
These are kernel internal APIs designed for on stack struct tpm_buf
so I can't think of a viable threat model that would require
this type of checking ... do you have one?
no, nothing particular in mind. I just get a little nervous when I see
variables being passed unchecked into internal functions starting with '__'.
