[12/38] 9p: strlen() doesnt count the terminator

From: Greg KH

2.6.35-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Dan Carpenter <error27@xxxxxxxxx>

commit 5c4bfa17f3ec46becec4b23d12323f7605ebd696 upstream.

This is an off by one bug because strlen() doesn't count the NULL
terminator. We strcpy() addr into a fixed length array of size
UNIX_PATH_MAX later on.

The addr variable is the name of the device being mounted.
