Subject: CVE-2024-26608: ksmbd: fix global oob in ksmbd_nl_policy


In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved:

ksmbd: fix global oob in ksmbd_nl_policy

Similar to a reported issue (check the commit b33fb5b801c6 ("net:
qualcomm: rmnet: fix global oob in rmnet_policy"), my local fuzzer finds
another global out-of-bounds read for policy ksmbd_nl_policy. See bug
trace below:

To fix it, add a placeholder named __KSMBD_EVENT_MAX and let
KSMBD_EVENT_MAX to be its original value - 1 according to what other
netlink families do. Also change two sites that refer the
KSMBD_EVENT_MAX to correct value.

The Linux kernel CVE team recommends that you update to the latest
stable kernel version for this, and many other bugfixes.  Individual
changes are never tested alone, but rather are part of a larger kernel
release.  Cherry-picking individual commits is not recommended or
supported by the Linux kernel community at all.  If however, updating to
the latest release is impossible, the individual changes to resolve this
issue can be found at these commits:
