Subject[PATCH 4.4 239/268] serial: samsung: Fix out-of-bounds access through serial port index
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Geert Uytterhoeven <>

[ Upstream commit 49ee23b71877831ac087d6083f6f397dc19c9664 ]

The s3c24xx_serial_ports[] array is indexed using a value derived from
the "serialN" alias in DT, or from an incrementing probe index, which
may lead to an out-of-bounds access.

Fix this by adding a range check.

Note that the array size is defined by a Kconfig symbol
(CONFIG_SERIAL_SAMSUNG_UARTS), so this can even be triggered using
a legitimate DTB or legitimate board code.

Fixes: 13a9f6c64fdc55eb ("serial: samsung: Consider DT alias when probing ports")
