    Subject[PATCH 15/91] Fix corrupted OSF partition table parsing
    2.6.27-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

    ------------------

    commit 1eafbfeb7bdf59cfe173304c76188f3fd5f1fd05 upstream.

    The kernel automatically evaluates partition tables of storage devices.
    The code for evaluating OSF partitions contains a bug that leaks data
    from kernel heap memory to userspace for certain corrupted OSF
    partitions.

    In more detail:

    for (i = 0 ; i < le16_to_cpu(label->d_npartitions); i++, partition++) {

    iterates from 0 to d_npartitions - 1, where d_npartitions is read from
    the partition table without validation and partition is a pointer to an
    array of at most 8 d_partitions.

    Add the proper and obvious validation.

    [ Changed the patch trivially to not repeat the whole le16_to_cpu()
    thing, and to use an explicit constant for the magic value '8' ]
