Subject: CVE request - kernel: drm: integer overflow in drm_mode_dirtyfb_ioctl()

There is a potential integer overflow in drm_mode_dirtyfb_ioctl() if
userspace passes in a large num_clips.  The call to kmalloc would
allocate a small buffer, and the call to fb->funcs->dirty may result in
a memory corruption.
