SubjectRe: Slab out of bounds in setxattr
Hi,

Looking at the crash some more, it seems that if value_len > PAGE_SIZE
then e_buf->max_size is rounded up nearest page size [1]. If a new
attribute is added with value_len < e_buf->max_size - EA_SIZE(ea) then
no new space is allocated for the attiribute list [2] and this
triggers the KASAN slab out of bounds error. This is the case in the C
repro I provided.
