Subject[PATCH 3.16.y-ckt 073/144] x86/microcode/intel: Guard against stack overflow in the loader
Date
3.16.7-ckt10 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Quentin Casasnovas <quentin.casasnovas@oracle.com>

commit f84598bd7c851f8b0bf8cd0d7c3be0d73c432ff4 upstream.

mc_saved_tmp is a static array allocated on the stack, we need to make
sure mc_saved_count stays within its bounds, otherwise we're overflowing
the stack in _save_mc(). A specially crafted microcode header could lead
to a kernel crash or potentially kernel execution.
