Subject[004/197] fat: fix buffer overflow in vfat_create_shortname()
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Nikolaus Schulz <microschulz@web.de>

commit 30d1872d9eb3663b4cf7bdebcbf5cd465674cced upstream.

When using the string representation of a random counter as part of the base
name, ensure that it is no longer than 4 bytes.

Since we are repeatedly decrementing the counter in a loop until we have found a
unique base name, the counter may wrap around zero; therefore, it is not enough
to mask its higher bits before entering the loop, this must be done inside the
loop.
