Subject[PATCH 5.5 362/399] char: hpet: Fix out-of-bounds read bug
Date
From: Gustavo A. R. Silva <gustavo@embeddedor.com>

[ Upstream commit 98c49f1746ac44ccc164e914b9a44183fad09f51 ]

Currently, there is an out-of-bounds read on array hpetp->hp_dev
in the following for loop:

870 for (i = 0; i < hdp->hd_nirqs; i++)
871 hpetp->hp_dev[i].hd_hdwirq = hdp->hd_irq[i];

This is due to the recent change from one-element array to
flexible-array member in struct hpets:

104 struct hpets {
...
113 struct hpet_dev hp_dev[];
114 };

This change affected the total size of the dynamic memory
allocation, decreasing it by one time the size of struct hpet_dev.

Fix this by adjusting the allocation size when calling
struct_size().
