Subject[patch 48/49] hfs: fix namelength memory corruption (CVE-2008-5025)
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Eric Sesterhenn <snakebyte@gmx.de>

commit d38b7aa7fc3371b52d036748028db50b585ade2e upstream

Fix a stack corruption caused by a corrupted hfs filesystem. If the
catalog name length is corrupted the memcpy overwrites the catalog btree
structure. Since the field is limited to HFS_NAMELEN bytes in the
structure and the file format, we throw an error if it is too long.
