Subject: [PATCH 5.0 097/117] xen: Prevent buffer overflow in privcmd ioctl

From: Dan Carpenter <>

commit 42d8644bd77dd2d747e004e367cb0c895a606f39 upstream.

The "call" variable comes from the user in privcmd_ioctl_hypercall().
It's an offset into the hypercall_page[] which has (PAGE_SIZE / 32)
elements.  We need to put an upper bound on it to prevent an out of
bounds access.

Fixes: 1246ae0bb992 ("xen: add variable hypercall caller")
