vhost: validate vhost_get_vq_desc return value
vhost fails to validate negative error code from vhost_get_vq_desc causing a crash: we are using -EFAULT which is 0xfffffff2 as vector size, which exceeds the allocated size. The code in question was introduced in commit 8dd014adfea6f173c1ef6378f7e5e7924866c923 vhost-net: mergeable buffers support CVE-2014-0055 Signed-off-by: Michael S. Tsirkin <mst@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
