Subject: [PATCH 2/2] netfilter: cttimeout: fix buffer overflow

From: Florian Westphal <fw@...len.de>

Chen Gang reports:
the length of nla_data(cda[CTA_TIMEOUT_NAME]) is not limited in server side.

And indeed, its used to strcpy to a fixed-sized buffer.

Fortunately, nfnetlink users need CAP_NET_ADMIN.
