Subject[155/289] firewire: ohci: fix buffer overflow in AR split packet handling
2.6.36-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Clemens Ladisch <clemens@ladisch.de>

commit 85f7ffd5d2b320f73912b15fe8cef34bae297daf upstream.

When the controller had to split a received asynchronous packet into two
buffers, the driver tries to reassemble it by copying both parts into
the first page. However, if size + rest > PAGE_SIZE, i.e., if the yet
unhandled packets before the split packet, the split packet itself, and
any received packets after the split packet are together larger than one
page, then the memory after the first page would get overwritten.
To fix this, do not try to copy the data of all unhandled packets at
once, but copy the possibly needed data every time when handling
a packet.

This gets rid of most of the infamous crashes and data corruptions when
using firewire-net.
