eCryptfs: Infinite loop due to overflow in ecryptfs_write()
Li Wang [Thu, 19 Jan 2012 01:44:36 +0000 (09:44 +0800)]
ecryptfs_write() can enter an infinite loop when truncating a file to a
size larger than 4G. This only happens on architectures where size_t is
represented by 32 bits.

This was caused by a size_t overflow due to it incorrectly being used to
store the result of a calculation which uses potentially large values of
type loff_t.
