Subject[PATCH] phonet: Check input from user before allocating
Date
A phonet packet is limited to USHRT_MAX bytes, this is never checked during
tx which means that the user can specify any size he wishes, and the kernel
will attempt to allocate that size.

In the good case, it'll lead to the following warning, but it may also cause
the kernel to kick in the OOM and kill a random task on the server.
