Subject[PATCH 1/2] ext4: fix warning about stack corruption
Date
After commit 62d1034f53e3 ("fortify: use WARN instead of BUG for now"),
we get a warning about possible stack overflow from a memcpy that
was not strictly bounded to the size of the local variable:

inlined from 'ext4_mb_seq_groups_show' at fs/ext4/mballoc.c:2322:2:
include/linux/string.h:309:9: error: '__builtin_memcpy': writing between 161 and 1116 bytes into a region of size 160 overflows the destination [-Werror=stringop-overflow=]

We actually had a bug here that would have been found by the warning,
but it was already fixed last year in commit 30a9d7afe70e ("ext4: fix
stack memory corruption with 64k block size").

This replaces the fixed-length structure on the stack with a variable-length
structure, using the correct upper bound that tells the compiler that
everything is really fine here. I also change the loop count to check
for the same upper bound for consistency, but the existing code is
already correct here.

Note that while clang won't allow certain kinds of variable-length arrays
in structures, this particular instance is fine, as the array is at the
end of the structure, and the size is strictly bounded.

There is one remaining issue with the function that I'm not addressing
here: With s_blocksize_bits==16, we don't actually print the last two
members of the array, as we loop though just the first 14 members.
This could be easily addressed by adding two extra columns in the output,
but that could in theory break parsers in user space, and should be
a separate patch if we decide to modify it.
