fs/partitions/efi.c: corrupted GUID partition tables can cause kernel oops

The kernel automatically evaluates partition tables of storage devices.
The code for evaluating GUID partitions (in fs/partitions/efi.c) contains
a bug that causes a kernel oops on certain corrupted GUID partition

This bug has security impacts, because it allows, for example, to
prepare a storage device that crashes a kernel subsystem upon connecting
the device (e.g., a "USB Stick of (Partial) Death").

	crc = efi_crc32((const unsigned char *) (*gpt), le32_to_cpu((*gpt)->header_size));

computes a CRC32 checksum over gpt covering (*gpt)->header_size bytes.
There is no validation of (*gpt)->header_size before the efi_crc32 call.

A corrupted partition table may have large values for (*gpt)->header_size.
 In this case, the CRC32 computation access memory beyond the memory
allocated for gpt, which may cause a kernel heap overflow.

Validate value of GUID partition table header size.
