Subject[029/107] cifs: fix possible memory corruption in CIFSFindNext
2.6.32-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Jeff Layton <jlayton@redhat.com>

commit 9438fabb73eb48055b58b89fc51e0bc4db22fabd upstream.

The name_len variable in CIFSFindNext is a signed int that gets set to
the resume_name_len in the cifs_search_info. The resume_name_len however
is unsigned and for some infolevels is populated directly from a 32 bit
value sent by the server.

If the server sends a very large value for this, then that value could
look negative when converted to a signed int. That would make that
value pass the PATH_MAX check later in CIFSFindNext. The name_len would
then be used as a length value for a memcpy. It would then be treated
as unsigned again, and the memcpy scribbles over a ton of memory.

Fix this by making the name_len an unsigned value in CIFSFindNext.
