next_pidmap: fix overflow condition
next_pidmap() just quietly accepted whatever 'last' pid that was passed in, which is not all that safe when one of the users is /proc. Admittedly the proc code should do some sanity checking on the range (and that will be the next commit), but that doesn't mean that the helper functions should just do that pidmap pointer arithmetic without checking the range of its arguments. So clamp 'last' to PID_MAX_LIMIT. The fact that we then do "last+1" doesn't really matter, the for-loop does check against the end of the pidmap array properly (it's only the actual pointer arithmetic overflow case we need to worry about, and going one bit beyond isn't going to overflow). [ Use PID_MAX_LIMIT rather than pid_max as per Eric Biederman ] Reported-by: Tavis Ormandy <taviso@cmpxchg8b.com> Analyzed-by: Robert Święcki <robert@swiecki.net> Cc: Eric W.
