SubjectRe: [CHECKER] 87 potential array bounds error/buffer overruns in 2.5.53

URL for original email:
http://www.lkml.org/archive/2003/1/26/98/index.html

| Attached are 87 potential buffer overruns in 2.5.53. Most arise from
| improper bounds checks, and some might be security holes where the array
| index comes from an untrusted source (e.g. copy_from_user). In the bug
| report, "len" refers to the length of the array or buffer being
| accessed, and "off" refers to the offset/index that is being used to
| access it. (off >= len) corresponds to a buffer overrun, while (off < 0)
| signals an underrun.


Here is a summary report of patches for these reported problems.
I suggest that we ask the kernel-janitors project to try to
finish this off.
