lib/radix-tree.c: fix overflow in radix_tree_range_tag_if_tagged()
Jan Kara [Thu, 19 Aug 2010 21:13:33 +0000 (14:13 -0700)]
When radix_tree_maxindex() is ~0UL, it can happen that scanning overflows
index and tree traversal code goes astray reading memory until it hits
unreadable memory.  Check for overflow and exit in that case.
