commit 5638cabf3e4883f38dfb246c30980cebf694fbda upstream.

There are cases when cryptlen can be zero in crypto_ccm_auth():
-encryptiom: input scatterlist length is zero (no plaintext)
-decryption: input scatterlist contains only the mac
plus the condition of having different source and destination buffers
(or else scatterlist length = max(plaintext_len, ciphertext_len)).

These are not handled correctly, leading to crashes like:
