Staging: vt6655: fix buffer overflow
"param->u.wpa_associate.wpa_ie_len" comes from the user. We should check it so that the copy_from_user() doesn't overflow the buffer. Also further down in the function, we assume that if "param->u.wpa_associate.wpa_ie_len" is set then "abyWPAIE[0]" is initialized. To make that work, I changed the test here to say that if "wpa_ie_len" is set then "wpa_ie" has to be a valid pointer or we return -EINVAL. Oddly, we only use the first element of the abyWPAIE[] array. So I suspect there may be some other issues in this function.
