Thank you Dan for identifying the issue. Yes there is a typo and it needs a fix.

Yes this resolves the issue.
Thanks for this fix.

That's sort of unweildy.  I don't fear that change because I'm confident
I would catch it with static analysis.

as future FIXME some show find a name that differ in more than just the last 
char.
NTL maybe
 sizeof(zip_dev[index]->stats)
can be used here ?

[PATCH] crypto: zip - Memory corruption in zip_clear_stats()

2017-03-17 Thread Dan Carpenter
There is a typo here.  It should be "stats" instead of "state".  The
impact is that we clear 224 bytes instead of 80 and we zero out memory
that we shouldn't.
