Subject[34-longterm 125/209] rds: Integer overflow in RDS cmsg handling
From: Dan Rosenberg <>

| This is a commit scheduled for the next v2.6.34 longterm release. |
| If you see a problem with using this for longterm, please comment.|

commit 218854af84038d828a32f061858b1902ed2beec6 upstream.

In rds_cmsg_rdma_args(), the user-provided args->nr_local value is
restricted to less than UINT_MAX. This seems to need a tighter upper
bound, since the calculation of total iov_size can overflow, resulting
in a small sock_kmalloc() allocation. This would probably just result
in walking off the heap and crashing when calling rds_rdma_pages() with
a high count value. If it somehow doesn't crash here, then memory
corruption could occur soon after.
