Subject[PATCH] ext4: validate directory entry data before use
Date
ext4_dx_find_entry uses ext4_next_entry without verifying that the entry is
valid. If its rec_len == 0 this causes an infinite loop. Refactor the loop
to check the validity of entries before checking whether they match and
moving onto the next one.

There are other uses of ext4_next_entry in this file which also look
problematic. They should be reviewed and fixed if/when we have a test-case
that triggers them.

This patch fixes the first case (image hdb.25.softlockup.gz) reported in
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10882.
