Subject[PATCH 4.4 022/132] printk: fix integer overflow in setup_log_buf()
Date
From: Sergey Senozhatsky <sergey.senozhatsky@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit d2130e82e9454304e9b91ba9da551b5989af8c27 ]

The way we calculate logbuf free space percentage overflows signed
integer:

int free;

free = __LOG_BUF_LEN - log_next_idx;
pr_info("early log buf free: %u(%u%%)\n",
free, (free * 100) / __LOG_BUF_LEN);

We support LOG_BUF_LEN of up to 1<<25 bytes. Since setup_log_buf() is
called during early init, logbuf is mostly empty, so

__LOG_BUF_LEN - log_next_idx

is close to 1<<25. Thus when we multiply it by 100, we overflow signed
integer value range: 100 is 2^6 + 2^5 + 2^2.

Example, booting with LOG_BUF_LEN 1<<25 and log_buf_len=2G
boot param:

[ 0.075317] log_buf_len: -2147483648 bytes
[ 0.075319] early log buf free: 33549896(-28%)

Make "free" unsigned integer and use appropriate printk() specifier.
