audit: fix signedness bug in audit_log_execve_info()
In the loop, a size_t "len" is used to hold the return value of audit_log_single_execve_arg(), which returns -1 on error. In that case the error handling (len <= 0) will be bypassed since "len" is unsigned, and the loop continues with (p += len) being wrapped. Change the type of "len" to signed int to fix the error handling. size_t len; ... for (...) { len = audit_log_single_execve_arg(...); if (len <= 0) break; p += len; } Signed-off-by: Xi Wang <xi.wang@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Eric Paris <eparis@redhat.com>
