[PATCH 4.9 61/63] intel_th: msu: Fix an off-by-one in attribute store




4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Alexander Shishkin <alexander.shishkin@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit ec5b5ad6e272d8d6b92d1007f79574919862a2d2 upstream.

The 'nr_pages' attribute of the 'msc' subdevices parses a comma-separated
list of window sizes, passed from userspace. However, there is a bug in
the string parsing logic wherein it doesn't exclude the comma character
from the range of characters as it consumes them. This leads to an
out-of-bounds access given a sufficiently long list. For example:

> # echo 8,8,8,8 > /sys/bus/intel_th/devices/0-msc0/nr_pages
> ==================================================================
> BUG: KASAN: slab-out-of-bounds in memchr+0x1e/0x40
> Read of size 1 at addr ffff8803ffcebcd1 by task sh/825
>
> CPU: 3 PID: 825 Comm: npktest.sh Tainted: G        W         4.20.0-rc1+
> Call Trace:
>  dump_stack+0x7c/0xc0
>  print_address_description+0x6c/0x23c

>  memchr+0x1e/0x40
>  nr_pages_store+0x203/0xd00 [intel_th_msu]

Fix this by accounting for the comma character.
