4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Gilad Ben-Yossef <gilad@benyossef.com>

commit e68368aed56324e2e38d4f6b044bb8cf82077fc2 upstream.

public_key_verify_signature() was passing the CRYPTO_TFM_REQ_MAY_BACKLOG
flag to akcipher_request_set_callback() but was not handling correctly
the case where a -EBUSY error could be returned from the call to
crypto_akcipher_verify() if backlog was used, possibly casuing
data corruption due to use-after-free of buffers.

Resolve this by handling -EBUSY correctly.
