Subject: [PATCH 3.16 01/26] udf: Avoid infinite loop when processing indirect ICBs

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

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

From: Jan Kara <jack@...e.cz>

commit c03aa9f6e1f938618e6db2e23afef0574efeeb65 upstream.

We did not implement any bound on number of indirect ICBs we follow when
loading inode. Thus corrupted medium could cause kernel to go into an
infinite loop, possibly causing a stack overflow.

Fix the possible stack overflow by removing recursion from
__udf_read_inode() and limit number of indirect ICBs we follow to avoid
infinite loops.
