Subject[PATCH 4.13 45/47] of/device: Prevent buffer overflow in of_device_modalias()
Date
4.13-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Bjorn Andersson <bjorn.andersson@linaro.org>

commit 08ab58d9de3eb8498ae0585001d0975e46217a39 upstream.

As of_device_get_modalias() returns the number of bytes that would have
been written to the target string, regardless of how much did fit in the
buffer, it's possible that the returned index points beyond the buffer
passed to of_device_modalias() - causing memory beyond the buffer to be
null terminated.

Fixes: 0634c2958927 ("of: Add function for generating a DT modalias with a newline")
