Subject: [PATCH 5.0 110/117] dm integrity: change memcmp to strncmp in dm_integrity_ctr

From: Mikulas Patocka <mpatocka@...hat.com>

commit 0d74e6a3b6421d98eeafbed26f29156d469bc0b5 upstream.

If the string opt_string is small, the function memcmp can access bytes
that are beyond the terminating nul character. In theory, it could cause
segfault, if opt_string were located just below some unmapped memory.

Change from memcmp to strncmp so that we don't read bytes beyond the end
of the string.
