Subject: CVE request: Linux kernel: vc4: int overflow leading to heap-based
 buffer overflow

Hi,

This issue affects the VC4_SUBMIT_CL IOCTL in the VideoCore DRM driver,
so probably only affects devices like the Raspberry Pi.

Quoting from Eric Anholt's post:

""
We copy the unvalidated ioctl arguments from the user into kernel
temporary memory to run the validation from, to avoid a race where the
user updates the unvalidate contents in between validating them and
copying them into the validated BO.

However, in setting up the layout of the kernel side, we failed to
check one of the additions (the roundup() for shader_rec_offset)
against integer overflow, allowing a nearly MAX_UINT value of
bin_cl_size to cause us to under-allocate the temporary space that we
then copy_from_user into.
