Subject[patch 74/83] uml: boot broken due to buffer overrun
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Balbir Singh <balbir@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

commit 361371201b60ffd686a694c848c1d5ad6061725f upstream.

mconsole_init() passed 256 bytes as length in os_create_unix_socket, while
the sizeof UNIX_PATH_MAX is 108. This patch fixes that problem and avoids
a big overrun bug reported on UML bootup.

sockaddr_un.sun_path is UNIX_PATH_MAX long which causes the problem.
