Subject: [PATCH 1/2 net] NFC: nci: Add some bounds checking in

This is similar to commit 674d9de02aa7 ("NFC: Fix possible memory
corruption when handling SHDLC I-Frame commands").

I'm not totally sure, but I think that commit description may have
overstated the danger.  I was under the impression that this data came
from the firmware?  If you can't trust your networking firmware, then
you're already in trouble.

Anyway, these days we add bounds checking where ever we can and we call
it kernel hardening.  Better safe than sorry.
