strtobool should handle all of this, so let's not force every individual
user of it to check the "length".

What is the problem that this patch is trying to solve?  Who is writing
odd values to this file that is not working properly?  Who writes
"0testfoo" to the file and expect it to reject the value?

[PATCH] driver core: restrict buffer length in online_store()

2017-07-20 Thread Tiezhu Yang
According to Documentation/ABI/testing/sysfs-devices-online, in order to
control CPU N's hotplug state, we should write one of 'Yy1Nn0' to the file
/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuN/online, other values should be invalid. so the
buffer length should be 2, buf[0] is one of 'Yy1Nn0' and buf[1] is '\n'.

without patch:
[root@localhost home]# echo 0test > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online
[root@localhost home]# cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online
0
[root@localhost home]# echo 1test > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online
[root@localhost home]# cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online
1
[root@localhost home]# echo ntest > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online
[root@localhost home]# cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online
0
[root@localhost home]# echo ytest > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online
[root@localhost home]# cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online
1
[root@localhost home]# echo Ntest > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online
[root@localhost home]# cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online
0
[root@localhost home]# echo Ytest > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online
[root@localhost home]# cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online
1

[root@localhost home]# echo 0test > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online
bash: echo: write error: Invalid argument
[root@localhost home]# echo 1test > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online
