Subject[patch 34/71] KVM: Fix KVM_GET_MSR_INDEX_LIST
2.6.30-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Jan Kiszka <jan.kiszka@web.de>

commit e125e7b6944898831b56739a5448e705578bf7e2 upstream.

So far, KVM copied the emulated_msrs (only MSR_IA32_MISC_ENABLE) to a
wrong address in user space due to broken pointer arithmetic. This
caused subtle corruption up there (missing MSR_IA32_MISC_ENABLE had
probably no practical relevance). Moreover, the size check for the
user-provided kvm_msr_list forgot about emulated MSRs.
