aio: check for multiplication overflow in do_io_submit
Tavis Ormandy pointed out that do_io_submit does not do proper bounds checking on the passed-in iocb array:        if (unlikely(nr < 0))                return -EINVAL;        if (unlikely(!access_ok(VERIFY_READ, iocbpp, (nr*sizeof(iocbpp)))))                return -EFAULT;                      ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ The attached patch checks for overflow, and if it is detected, the number of iocbs submitted is scaled down to a number that will fit in the long.  This is an ok thing to do, as sys_io_submit is documented as returning the number of iocbs submitted, so callers should handle a return value of less than the 'nr' argument passed in.
