Subject[PATCH 4.18 150/235] mtdchar: fix overflows in adjustment of `count`
Date
4.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Jann Horn <jannh@google.com>

[ Upstream commit 6c6bc9ea84d0008024606bf5ba10519e20d851bf ]

The first checks in mtdchar_read() and mtdchar_write() attempt to limit
`count` such that `*ppos + count <= mtd->size`. However, they ignore the
possibility of `*ppos > mtd->size`, allowing the calculation of `count` to
wrap around. `mtdchar_lseek()` prevents seeking beyond mtd->size, but the
pread/pwrite syscalls bypass this.

I haven't found any codepath on which this actually causes dangerous
behavior, but it seems like a sensible change anyway.
