SubjectRe: [PATCH] X.25: Fix address field length calculation
Date

E.g. called address 7 digits and caller address 3 digits. Called DCE
answering without facilities
gives us this packet (hex):

37 12 34 56 71 23 00

then x25_parse_address_block() tries to pull 1+7+3 = 11 bytes from the
packet (with pskb_may_pull())
which only has 7 bytes.
When facilities are included the wrong calculated length has no effect
since the facilities make this packet long enough to make pskb_may_pull
with wrong number
of bytes succeed. later x25_addr_ntoa() correctly pulls 6 bytes for
addresses from the packet.
