Subject[34-longterm 225/247] agp: fix arbitrary kernel memory writes
Date
From: Vasiliy Kulikov <segoon@openwall.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 194b3da873fd334ef183806db751473512af29ce upstream.

pg_start is copied from userspace on AGPIOC_BIND and AGPIOC_UNBIND ioctl
cmds of agp_ioctl() and passed to agpioc_bind_wrap(). As said in the
comment, (pg_start + mem->page_count) may wrap in case of AGPIOC_BIND,
and it is not checked at all in case of AGPIOC_UNBIND. As a result, user
with sufficient privileges (usually "video" group) may generate either
local DoS or privilege escalation.
