net: rtnl: avoid uninitialized data in IFLA_VF_VLAN_LIST handling
With the newly added support for IFLA_VF_VLAN_LIST netlink messages, we get a warning about potential uninitialized variable use in the parsing of the user input when enabling the -Wmaybe-uninitialized warning: net/core/rtnetlink.c: In function 'do_setvfinfo': net/core/rtnetlink.c:1756:9: error: 'ivvl$' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Werror=maybe-uninitialized] I have not been able to prove whether it is possible to arrive in this code with an empty IFLA_VF_VLAN_LIST block, but if we do, then ndo_set_vf_vlan gets called with uninitialized arguments. This adds an explicit check for an empty list, making it obvious to the reader and the compiler that this cannot happen. Fixes: 79aab093a0b5 ("net: Update API for VF vlan protocol 802.1ad support") Signed-off-by: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de> Reviewed-by: Moshe Shemesh <moshe@mellanox.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
