Subject: CVE Request: Linux: aio write triggers integer overflow in some
 network protocols


We would like to request a CVE for the following issue in the Linux
kernel: (v4.1-rc1)

For the linux-stable:

For an upcoming Linux DSA in Debian we would use something like:

> Ben Hawkes of Google Project Zero reported that the AIO interface
> permitted reading or writing 2 GiB of data or more in a single
> chunk, which could lead to an integer overflow when applied to
> certain filesystems, socket or device types.  The full security
> impact has not been evaluated.

The issue was initially already addressed via (v3.5-rc1)

but then opened again due to (v3.10-rc1)

Can you please assign a CVE id for this issue?
