2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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


From: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

[ Upstream commit 01db403cf99f739f86903314a489fb420e0e254f ]

Fixes kernel bugzilla #16603

tcp_sendmsg() truncates iov_len to an 'int' which a 4GB write to write
zero bytes, for example.

There is also the problem higher up of how verify_iovec() works.  It
wants to prevent the total length from looking like an error return
value.

However it does this using 'int', but syscalls return 'long' (and
thus signed 64-bit on 64-bit machines).  So it could trigger
false-positives on 64-bit as written.  So fix it to use 'long'.
