Subject[20/73] ldm: corrupted partition table can cause kernel oops
2.6.37-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Timo Warns <Warns@pre-sense.de>

commit 294f6cf48666825d23c9372ef37631232746e40d upstream.

The kernel automatically evaluates partition tables of storage devices.
The code for evaluating LDM partitions (in fs/partitions/ldm.c) contains
a bug that causes a kernel oops on certain corrupted LDM partitions. A
kernel subsystem seems to crash, because, after the oops, the kernel no
longer recognizes newly connected storage devices.

The patch changes ldm_parse_vmdb() to Validate the value of vblk_size.
