Subject[PATCH] SUNRPC: Prevent kernel stack corruption on long values of flush
Date
The buffer size in read_flush() is too small for the longest possible values
for it. This can lead to a kernel stack corruption:

[ 43.047329] Kernel panic - not syncing: stack-protector: Kernel stack is corrupted in: ffffffff833e64b4
