[PATCH 3/4] SELinux: ensure keys constant in hashtab_search

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


From: Chad Sellers <[email protected]>

Makes the key argument passed into hashtab_search and all the functions
it calls constant. These functions include hash table function pointers
hash_value and keycmp. The only implementations of these currently
are symhash and symcmp, which do not modify the key. The key parameter
should never be changed by any of these, so it should be const. This
is necessary to allow calling these functions with keys found in kernel
object class and permission definitions.
