Subject[PATCH 3.2 086/199] x86/cpu: Fix bootup crashes by sanitizing the argument of the 'clearcpuid=' command-line option
3.2.87-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Lukasz Odzioba <lukasz.odzioba@intel.com>

commit dd853fd216d1485ed3045ff772079cc8689a9a4a upstream.

A negative number can be specified in the cmdline which will be used as
setup_clear_cpu_cap() argument. With that we can clear/set some bit in
memory predceeding boot_cpu_data/cpu_caps_cleared which may cause kernel
to misbehave. This patch adds lower bound check to setup_disablecpuid().

Boris Petkov reproduced a crash:

[ 1.234575] BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at ffffffff858bd540
[ 1.236535] IP: memcpy_erms+0x6/0x10
