From: Kamal Mostafa
Date: Thu Nov 07 2013 - 21:17:59 EST -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Dan Carpenter <dan.carpenter@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 201f99f170df14ba52ea4c52847779042b7a623b upstream.

We don't cap the size of buffer from the user so we could write past the
end of the array here. Only root can write to this file.
