Subject[PATCH 4.9 17/17] jfs: Fix inconsistency between memory allocation and ea_buf->max_size
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Shankara Pailoor <shankarapailoor@gmail.com>

commit 92d34134193e5b129dc24f8d79cb9196626e8d7a upstream.

The code is assuming the buffer is max_size length, but we weren't
allocating enough space for it.
