Subject: fs/seq_file: fix out-of-bounds read
commit 088bf2ff5d12e2e32ee52a4024fec26e582f44d3 upstream.
seq_read() is a nasty piece of work, not to mention buggy.
It has (I think) an old bug which allows unprivileged userspace to read
beyond the end of m->buf.
I was getting these:
BUG: KASAN: slab-out-of-bounds in seq_read+0xcd2/0x1480 at addr ffff880116889880

Disabling lock debugging due to kernel taint
This seems to be the same thing that Dave Jones was seeing here:
https://lkml.org/lkml/2016/8/12/334
There are multiple issues here:
1) If we enter the function with a non-empty buffer, there is an attempt
to flush it. But it was not clearing m->from after doing so, which
means that if we try to do this flush twice in a row without any call
to traverse() in between, we are going to be reading from the wrong
place -- the splat above, fixed by this patch.
2) If there's a short write to userspace because of page faults, the
buffer may already contain multiple lines (i.e. pos has advanced by
more than 1), but we don't save the progress that was made so the
next call will output what we've already returned previously. Since
that is a much less serious issue (and I have a headache after
staring at seq_read() for the past 8 hours), I'll leave that for now.
