Subject[PATCH 3.18 01/29] ibmasm: dont write out of bounds in read handler
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Jann Horn <jannh@google.com>

commit a0341fc1981a950c1e902ab901e98f60e0e243f3 upstream.

This read handler had a lot of custom logic and wrote outside the bounds of
the provided buffer. This could lead to kernel and userspace memory
corruption. Just use simple_read_from_buffer() with a stack buffer.

Fixes: 1da177e4c3f4 ("Linux-2.6.12-rc2")
