[PATCH 3.12 057/122] kconfig: fix bug in search results string: use strlen(gstr->s), not gstr->len

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


commit 503c823048e81cc85c0e9d8c297cc70203e335e5 upstream.

The struct gstr has a capacity that may differ from the actual string length.

However, a string manipulation in the function search_conf made the assumption
that it is the same, which led to messing up some search results, especially
when the content of the gstr in use had not yet reached at least 63 chars.
