niu: Fix kernel buffer overflow for ETHTOOL_GRXCLSRLALL

commit ee9c5cfad29c8a13199962614b9b16f1c4137ac9 upstream.

niu_get_ethtool_tcam_all() assumes that its output buffer is the right
size, and warns before returning if it is not.  However, the output
buffer size is under user control and ETHTOOL_GRXCLSRLALL is an
unprivileged ethtool command.  Therefore this is at least a local
denial-of-service vulnerability.

Change it to check before writing each entry and to return an error if
the buffer is already full.

Compile-tested only.
