Subject[patch 31/38] ARM: 6891/1: prevent heap corruption in OABI semtimedop
2.6.38-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Dan Rosenberg <drosenberg@vsecurity.com>

commit 0f22072ab50cac7983f9660d33974b45184da4f9 upstream.

When CONFIG_OABI_COMPAT is set, the wrapper for semtimedop does not
bound the nsops argument. A sufficiently large value will cause an
integer overflow in allocation size, followed by copying too much data
into the allocated buffer. Fix this by restricting nsops to SEMOPM.
Untested.
