Subject[PATCH 3.12 080/181] ALSA: control: Handle numid overflow
Date
From: Lars-Peter Clausen <lars@metafoo.de>

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

===============

commit ac902c112d90a89e59916f751c2745f4dbdbb4bd upstream.

Each control gets automatically assigned its numids when the control is created.
The allocation is done by incrementing the numid by the amount of allocated
numids per allocation. This means that excessive creation and destruction of
controls (e.g. via SNDRV_CTL_IOCTL_ELEM_ADD/REMOVE) can cause the id to
eventually overflow. Currently when this happens for the control that caused the
overflow kctl->id.numid + kctl->count will also over flow causing it to be
smaller than kctl->id.numid. Most of the code assumes that this is something
that can not happen, so we need to make sure that it won't happen
