usermodehelper: check subprocess_info->path != NULL
argv_split(empty_or_all_spaces) happily succeeds, it simply returns argc == 0 and argv[0] == NULL. Change call_usermodehelper_exec() to check sub_info->path != NULL to avoid the crash. This is the minimal fix, todo: - perhaps we should change argv_split() to return NULL or change the callers. - kill or justify ->path[0] check - narrow the scope of helper_lock() Signed-off-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com> Acked-By: Lucas De Marchi <lucas.demarchi@intel.com> Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
