Subject: [PATCH v2] virtio_console: Assure used length from device is limited
Date: Tue, 25 May 2021 20:56:22 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

The buf->len might come from an untrusted device. This
ensures the value would not exceed the size of the buffer
to avoid data corruption or loss.
