Subject[PATCH 13/91] fs/partitions/ldm.c: fix oops caused by corrupted partition table
2.6.27-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
commit c340b1d640001c8c9ecff74f68fd90422ae2448a upstream.

The kernel automatically evaluates partition tables of storage devices.
The code for evaluating LDM partitions (in fs/partitions/ldm.c) contains
a bug that causes a kernel oops on certain corrupted LDM partitions.
A kernel subsystem seems to crash, because, after the oops, the kernel no
longer recognizes newly connected storage devices.

The patch validates the value of vblk_size.
