Wow, this is confusing code.  The patch description isn't clear enough
that this is a bugfix patch and not just a "tag data" patch.

I don't think this is correct.  We need to check the length of the input
buffer before we call get_user().  Can we return directly or do we
*need* to go to the mysteriously named "out"?  Also the + 2 is lost,
this would break everything if the current code works (not necessarily a
valid assumption).  Delete all my comments in the final code.

	/* 2 because we skip the first byte and read length from the
	   second byte */
	if (wrq->length < 2) {
		ret = -EINVAL;
		goto out;
	}

	ret = get_user(length, extra + 1);
	if (ret)
		goto out;

	if (length + 2 != wrq->length) {
		ret = -EINVAL;
		goto out;
	}

dan carpenter
