Subject[PATCH 3.16 111/136] s390/cmm: fix information leak in cmm_timeout_handler()
3.16.80-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Yihui ZENG <yzeng56@asu.edu>

commit b8e51a6a9db94bc1fb18ae831b3dab106b5a4b5f upstream.

The problem is that we were putting the NUL terminator too far:

buf[sizeof(buf) - 1] = '\0';

If the user input isn't NUL terminated and they haven't initialized the
whole buffer then it leads to an info leak. The NUL terminator should
be:

buf[len - 1] = '\0';
