We used to read file_handle twice. Once to get the amount of extra bytes, and
once to fetch the entire structure.

This may be problematic since we do size verifications only after the first
read, so if the number of extra bytes changes in userspace between the first
and second calls, we'll have an incoherent view of file_handle.

Instead, read the constant size once, and copy that over to the final
structure without having to re-read it again.

Change in v2:
 - Use the f_handle pointer rather than size of struct

Hi,

This commit fixes a race condition an unprivileged user can exploit to corrupt
kernel memory. I can't seem to get anyone to grab it for the past 4+ months.

Help please?


Thanks,
Sasha

Will take it directly. Feel free to just cc me directly earlier if
things take this long.

Thanks,
