Subject[ 044/109] udf: Improve table length check to avoid possible overflow
Date
From: Greg KH <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>

3.4-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Jan Kara <jack@suse.cz>

commit 57b9655d01ef057a523e810d29c37ac09b80eead upstream.

When a partition table length is corrupted to be close to 1 << 32, the
check for its length may overflow on 32-bit systems and we will think
the length is valid. Later on the kernel can crash trying to read beyond
end of buffer. Fix the check to avoid possible overflow.
