Subject[PATCH 4.14 43/89] mm/mempolicy.c: fix out of bounds write in mpol_parse_str()
Date
From: Dan Carpenter <dan.carpenter@oracle.com>

commit c7a91bc7c2e17e0a9c8b9745a2cb118891218fd1 upstream.

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).
