net: tehuti: don't process data if it has not been copied from userspace
The array data is only populated with valid information from userspace if cmd != SIOCDEVPRIVATE, other cases the array contains garbage on the stack. The subsequent switch statement acts on a subcommand in data[0] which could be any garbage value if cmd is SIOCDEVPRIVATE which seems incorrect to me. Instead, just return EOPNOTSUPP for the case where cmd == SIOCDEVPRIVATE to avoid this issue. As a side note, I suspect that the original intention of the code was for this ioctl to work just for cmd == SIOCDEVPRIVATE (and the current logic is reversed). However, I don't wont to change the current semantics in case any userspace code relies on this existing behaviour.
