[PATCH] iov_iter: Fix out-of-bound access in iov_iter_advance()

From: Takashi Iwai
Date: Thu Mar 31 2016 - 06:49:36 EST

Currently, iov_iter_advance() just calls iterate_and_advance() macro
as is, even if size=0 is passed. Usually it is OK to pass size=0 to
the macro. However, when the iov_iter has been already advanced to
the end of the array, it may lead to an out-of-bound access, since the
macro always reads the length of the vector at first. This bug is
actually seen via KASAN with net tun driver, for example.

This patch adds the proper check of the size to iov_iter_advance(),
like all other functions calling iterate_and_advance() macro.

We can put these checks in iterate_and_advance(), too. I chose this
patch since it's smaller, and doing in the macro will be a bit ugly.
Let me know if you prefer another option.
