[PATCH 3.2 060/152] isofs: Fix infinite looping over CE entries

From: Ben Hutchings
Date: Mon Feb 16 2015 - 20:54:21 EST

3.2.67-rc1 review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Jan Kara <jack@xxxxxxx>

commit f54e18f1b831c92f6512d2eedb224cd63d607d3d upstream.

Rock Ridge extensions define so called Continuation Entries (CE) which
define where is further space with Rock Ridge data. Corrupted isofs
image can contain arbitrarily long chain of these, including a one
containing loop and thus causing kernel to end in an infinite loop when
traversing these entries.

Limit the traversal to 32 entries which should be more than enough space
to store all the Rock Ridge data.
