Subject: [PATCH v2] lib: test_overflow: Avoid tainting the kernel and fix
 wrap size

This adds __GFP_NOWARN to the kmalloc()-portions of the overflow test to
avoid tainting the kernel. Additionally fixes up the math on wrap size
to be architecture and page size agnostic.

Reported-by: Randy Dunlap <rdunlap@...radead.org>
Suggested-by: Rasmus Villemoes <linux@...musvillemoes.dk>
Fixes: ca90800a91ba ("test_overflow: Add memory allocation overflow tests")
Signed-off-by: Kees Cook <keescook@...omium.org>
