Subject[ 18/52] TTY: ttyprintk, dont touch behind tty->write_buf
Date
3.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Jiri Slaby <jslaby@suse.cz>

commit ee8b593affdf893012e57f4c54a21984d1b0d92e upstream.

If a user provides a buffer larger than a tty->write_buf chunk and
passes '\r' at the end of the buffer, we touch an out-of-bound memory.

Add a check there to prevent this.
