As part of my project, while reading the reports, I came to know about bugs where incorrect sizeof expressions are used, typically leading to allocation of data of the wrong size. There were many in the versions 2.4.x and 2.6.x. I was also required to list FPs (false positives) by Coccinelle. This post will be about, what I found for the mentioned case.
This is the title of my project, that I’ll be working on this winter as a Gnome Linux Kernel Intern.
This blog post is the introduction about my project and what all I’ll be doing in it.
