char: hpet: Fix out-of-bounds read bug
Currently, there is an out-of-bounds read on array hpetp->hp_dev in the following for loop: 870 for (i = 0; i < hdp->hd_nirqs; i++) 871 hpetp->hp_dev[i].hd_hdwirq = hdp->hd_irq[i]; This is due to the recent change from one-element array to flexible-array member in struct hpets: 104 struct hpets { ... 113 struct hpet_dev hp_dev[]; 114 }; This change affected the total size of the dynamic memory allocation, decreasing it by one time the size of struct hpet_dev. Fix this by adjusting the allocation size when calling struct_size(). Fixes: 987f028b8637c ("char: hpet: Use flexible-array member") Signed-off-by: Gustavo A. R.
