Subject: [PATCH, Bugfix] RAMOOPS: Don't overflow over non-allocated regions
Date: Sat, 25 Dec 2010 11:57:09 +0200
Message-ID: <20101225095709.GA1345@laptop> (raw)

Hi,

Current code mis-calculates the ramoops header size, leading to an
overflow over the next record at best, or over a non-allocated region
at worst. Fix that calculation.

Shouldn't this be added to -stable too?

Happy New Year!
