Subject[PATCH 4.13 064/110] brd: fix overflow in __brd_direct_access
4.13-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Mikulas Patocka <>

commit 02a4843618fb35f847cf8c31cd3893873aa0edde upstream.

The code in __brd_direct_access multiplies the pgoff variable by page size
and divides it by 512. It can cause overflow on 32-bit architectures. The
overflow happens if we create ramdisk larger than 4G and use it as a
sparse device.

This patch replaces multiplication and division with multiplication by the
number of sectors per page.
