Subject[PATCH] mm/mempolicy.c: Fix out of bounds write in mpol_parse_str()
What we are trying to do is change the '=' character to a NUL terminator
and then at the end of the function we restore it back to an '='. The
problem is there are two error paths where we jump to the end of the
function before we have replaced the '=' with NUL. We end up putting
the '=' in the wrong place (possibly one element before the start of
the buffer).
