DescriptionIn the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: tipc: fix kernel warning when sending SYN message When sending a SYN message, this kernel stack trace is observed: ... [ 13.396352] RIP: 0010:_copy_from_iter+0xb4/0x550 ...

Lacking of copy direction from the iterator viewpoint would lead to kernel stack trace like above. This commit fixes this issue by initializing the iov iterator with the correct copy direction when sending SYN or ACK without data.
