xfs: Fix possible memory corruption in xfs_readlink
commit b52a360b2aa1c59ba9970fb0f52bbb093fcc7a24 upstream. Fixes a possible memory corruption when the link is larger than MAXPATHLEN and XFS_DEBUG is not enabled. This also remove the S_ISLNK assert, since the inode mode is checked previously in xfs_readlink_by_handle() and via VFS. Updated to address concerns raised by Ben Hutchings about the loose attention paid to 32- vs 64-bit values, and the lack of handling a potentially negative pathlen value: - Changed type of "pathlen" to be xfs_fsize_t, to match that of ip->i_d.di_size - Added checking for a negative pathlen to the too-long pathlen test, and generalized the message that gets reported in that case to reflect the change As a result, if a negative pathlen were encountered, this function would return EFSCORRUPTED (and would fail an assertion for a debug build)--just as would a too-long pathlen.
