Subject: [PATCH 3.13 257/259] dns_resolver: assure that dns_query() result is null-terminated

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

------------------

From: =?UTF-8?q?Manuel=20Sch=C3=B6lling?= <manuel.schoelling@....de>

[ Upstream commit 84a7c0b1db1c17d5ded8d3800228a608e1070b40 ]

dns_query() credulously assumes that keys are null-terminated and
returns a copy of a memory block that is off by one.
