4.12-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: "Levin, Alexander" <alexander.le...@verizon.com>

[ Upstream commit 98de4e0ea47d106846fc0e30ce4e644283fa7fc2 ]

ifr name is assumed to be a valid string by the kernel, but nothing
was forcing username to pass a valid string.

In turn, this would cause panics as we tried to access the string
past it's valid memory.
