Subject[PATCH] fix memory corruption from misinterpreted bad_inode_ops return values
CVE-2006-5753 is for a case where an inode can be marked bad, switching 
the ops to bad_inode_ops, which are all connected as:

static int return_EIO(void)
{
return -EIO;
}
#define EIO_ERROR ((void *) (return_EIO))

static struct inode_operations bad_inode_ops =
{
.create = bad_inode_create
...etc...
The problem here is that the void cast causes return types to not be
promoted, and for ops such as listxattr which expect more than 32 bits of
return value, the 32-bit -EIO is interpreted as a large positive 64-bit
number, i.e. 0x00000000fffffffa instead of 0xfffffffa.
This goes particularly badly when the return value is taken as a number of
bytes to copy into, say, a user's buffer for example...

I originally had coded up the fix by creating a return_EIO_<TYPE> macro
for each return type, like this:

static int return_EIO_int(void)
{
return -EIO;
}
#define EIO_ERROR_INT ((void *) (return_EIO_int))
static struct inode_operations bad_inode_ops =
{
.create = EIO_ERROR_INT,
...etc...
but Al felt that it was probably better to create an EIO-returner for each
actual op signature. Since so few ops share a signature, I just went ahead
& created an EIO function for each individual file & inode op that returns
a value.

So here's the first stab at fixing it. I'm sure there are style points
to be hashed out. Putting all the functions as static inlines in a header
was just to avoid hundreds of lines of simple function declarations before
we get to the meat of bad_inode.c, but it's probably technically wrong to
put it in a header. Also if putting a copyright on that trivial header file
is going overboard, just let me know. Or if anyone has a less verbose
but still correct way to address this problem, I'm all ears.

Thanks,

-Eric
