Subject[PATCH] irda: fix type of struct irda_ias_set.attribute.irda_attrib_string.len
  CC [M]  net/irda/af_irda.o
net/irda/af_irda.c: In function `irda_setsockopt':
net/irda/af_irda.c:1894: warning: comparison is always false due to limited range of data type

in irda_setsockopt:

/* Should check charset & co */
/* Check length */
if(ias_opt->attribute.irda_attrib_string.len >
IAS_MAX_STRING) {
kfree(ias_opt);
return -EINVAL;
}
Ok, ias_opt->attribute.irda_attrib_string.len is __u8, but
IAS_MAX_STRING = 256... so attribute.irda_attrib_string.len has to be at least
__u18, this patch fix this, please see if it is appropriate and if it is so,
apply.

Best Regards,

- Arnaldo
