exec.c, compat.c: fix count(), compat_count() bounds checking
Jason Baron [Thu, 16 Oct 2008 05:01:52 +0000 (22:01 -0700)]
With MAX_ARG_STRINGS set to 0x7FFFFFFF, and being passed to 'count()' and
compat_count(), it would appear that the current max bounds check of
fs/exec.c:394:

if(++i > max)
return -E2BIG;

would never trigger. Since 'i' is of type int, so values would wrap and the
function would continue looping.

Simple fix seems to be chaning ++i to i++ and checking for '>='.
