Subject[34-longterm 236/247] irda: prevent integer underflow in IRLMP_ENUMDEVICES
Date
From: Dan Rosenberg <drosenberg@vsecurity.com>

-------------------
This is a commit scheduled for the next v2.6.34 longterm release.
If you see a problem with using this for longterm, please comment.
-------------------

commit fdac1e0697356ac212259f2147aa60c72e334861 upstream.

If the user-provided len is less than the expected offset, the
IRLMP_ENUMDEVICES getsockopt will do a copy_to_user() with a very large
size value. While this isn't be a security issue on x86 because it will
get caught by the access_ok() check, it may leak large amounts of kernel
heap on other architectures. In any event, this patch fixes it.
