Subject[271/289] can-bcm: fix minor heap overflow
2.6.36-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Oliver Hartkopp <socketcan@hartkopp.net>

commit 0597d1b99fcfc2c0eada09a698f85ed413d4ba84 upstream.

On 64-bit platforms the ASCII representation of a pointer may be up to 17
bytes long. This patch increases the length of the buffer accordingly.
