Re: security/loadpin: Allow to exclude specific file types




I think Coverity is correct. Note that it's the size of
kernel_read_file_str (rather than exclude_read_files) doesn't equal to
ignore_read_file_id.

This is because READING_MAX_ID is also an element in
kernel_read_file_str, which makes the size of kernel_read_file_str to
be READING_MAX_ID+1. I will send a new patch to fix the issue. Thanks
for the  analysis!
