Subject: [PATCH net] filter: prevent nla extensions to peek beyond the end of the message

The BPF_S_ANC_NLATTR and BPF_S_ANC_NLATTR_NEST extensions fail to check
for a minimal message length before testing the supplied offset to be
within the bounds of the message. This allows the subtraction of the nla
header to underflow and therefore -- as the data type is unsigned --
allowing far to big offset and length values for the search of the
netlink attribute.

The remainder calculation for the BPF_S_ANC_NLATTR_NEST extension is
also wrong. It has the minuend und subtrahend mixed up, therefore
calculates a huge length value, allowing to overrun the end of the
message while looking for the netlink attribute.

The following three BPF snippets will trigger the bugs when attached to
a UNIX datagram socket and parsing a message with length 1, 2 or 3.

 ,-[ PoC for wrong remainder calculation in BPF_S_ANC_NLATTR_NEST ]--
 | ; (needs a fake netlink header at offset 0)
 | ld	#0
 | ldx	#42
 | ld	#nlan
 | ret	a
 `---

Fix the first issue by ensuring the message length fulfills the minimal
size constrains of a nla header. Fix the second bug by getting the math
for the remainder calculation right.

Backporters will find the code in question in the switch block of
sk_run_filter().
