Subject[PATCH] thermal: Fix slab-out-of-bounds in thermal_cooling_device_stats_update()
From: zhuguangqing <>

In function thermal_cooling_device_stats_update(), if the input parameter
new_state is greater or equal to stats->max_states, then it will cause
slab-out-of-bounds error when execute the code as follows:
stats->trans_table[stats->state * stats->max_states + new_state]++;

Two functions call the function thermal_cooling_device_stats_update().
1. cur_state_store()
2. thermal_cdev_set_cur_state()
Both of the two functions call cdev->ops->set_cur_state(cdev, state)
before thermal_cooling_device_stats_update(), if the return value is
not 0, then thermal_cooling_device_stats_update() will not be called.
So if all cdev->ops->set_cur_state(cdev, state) check validity of the
parameter state, then it's ok. Unfortunately, it's not now.

We have two methods to avoid the slab-out-of-bounds error in
1. Check the validity of the parameter state in all
cdev->ops->set_cur_state(cdev, state).
2. Check the validity of the parameter state in

Use method 2 in this patch. Because the modification is simple and
resolve the problem in the scope of "#ifdef CONFIG_THERMAL_STATISTICS".
