Subject[PATCH 3.2 094/106] lib/cmdline.c: fix get_options() overflow while parsing ranges
3.2.93-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Ilya Matveychikov <matvejchikov@gmail.com>

commit a91e0f680bcd9e10c253ae8b62462a38bd48f09f upstream.

When using get_options() it's possible to specify a range of numbers,
like 1-100500. The problem is that it doesn't track array size while
calling internally to get_range() which iterates over the range and
fills the memory with numbers.
