[PATCH v1 1/1] dmaengine: stm32-dmamux: fix a potential buffer overflow




The bitfield dma_inuse is allocated of size dma_requests bits, thus a
valid bit address is from 0 to (dma_requests - 1).
When find_first_zero_bit() fails, it returns dma_requests as invalid
address.
Using such address for the following set_bit() is incorrect and, if
dma_requests is a multiple of BITS_PER_LONG, it will cause a buffer
overflow.
Currently this driver is only used in DT stm32h743.dtsi where a safe value
dma_requests=16 is not triggering the buffer overflow.

Fixed by checking the return value of find_first_zero_bit() _before_
using it.
