Subject: [PATCH] squashfs: fix length field overlap check in metadata reading
Date: Fri, 17 Jul 2020 20:55:36 +0100
Message-ID: <> (raw)

This is a regression introduced by the "migrate from ll_rw_block usage
to BIO" patch.

Squashfs packs structures on byte boundaries, and due to that
the length field (of the metadata block) may not be fully in
the current block.  The new code rewrote and introduced a faulty
check for that edge case.
