FWIW, below is the revised one to move the check into
resource_contains().

My concern is, however, that the resource validity check isn't a job
of resource_contains(). OTOH, this may avoid other similar cases, so
it might be worth.

In anyway, if there is no objection, and anyone else doesn't want to
take, I'll forward this to Andrew as a poor orphan kid.

Subject: [PATCH v2] resource: Fix integer overflow at reallocation

We've got a bug report indicating a kernel panic at booting on an
x86-32 system, and it turned out to be the invalid resource assigned
after reallocation. __find_resource() first aligns the resource start
address and resets the end address with start+size-1 accordingly, then
checks whether it's contained. Here the end address may overflow the
integer, although resource_contains() still returns true because the
function validates only start and end address. So this ends up with
returning an invalid resource (start > end).

There was already an attempt to cover such a problem in the commit
47ea91b4052d ("Resource: fix wrong resource window calculation"), but
this case is an overseen one.

This patch adds the validity check in resource_contains() to see
whether the given resource has a valid range for avoiding the integer
overflow problem.
