3.16.7-ckt3 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Ronald Wahl <ronald.wahl@xxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 4f031fa9f188b2b0641ac20087d9e16bcfb4e49d upstream.

Commit 7ec7c4a9a686c608315739ab6a2b0527a240883c (mac80211: port CCMP to
cryptoapi's CCM driver) introduced a regression when decrypting empty
packets (data_len == 0). This will lead to backtraces like:

(scatterwalk_start) from [<c01312f4>] (scatterwalk_map_and_copy+0x2c/0xa8)

(__irq_svc) from [<c0009d44>] (arch_cpu_idle+0x2c/0x34)

Such packets can appear for example when using the carl9170 wireless driver
because hardware sometimes generates garbage when the internal FIFO overruns.

This patch adds an additional length check.
