    tools/thermal: tmon: fix for segfault · 6c59f64b
    Frank Asseg authored
    Fixes a segfault occurring when e.g. <TAB> is pressed multiple times in the
    ncurses tmon application. The segfault is caused by incrementing
    cur_thermal_record in the main function without checking if it's value reached
    NR_THERMAL_RECORD immediately. Since the boundary check only occurred in
    update_thermal_data a race condition existed, which lead to an attempted read
    beyond the last element of the trec array.
    
    The fix was implemented by moving the cur_thermal_record incrementation to the
    update_thermal_data function using a temporary variable on which the boundary
    condition is checked before updating cur_thread_record, so that the variable is
    never incremented beyond the trec array's boundary.
    
    It seems the segfault does not occur on every machine: On a HP EliteBook G4 the
    segfault happens, while it does not happen on a Thinkpad T540p.
