uclinux: fix gzip header parsing in binfmt_flat.c
Volodymyr G. Lukiianyk [Thu, 16 Oct 2008 05:01:15 +0000 (22:01 -0700)]
There are off-by-one errors in decompress_exec() when calculating the length of
optional "original file name" and "comment" fields: the "ret" index is not
incremented when terminating '\0' character is reached. The check of the buffer
overflow (after an "extra-field" length was taken into account) is also fixed.

I've encountered this off-by-one error when tried to reuse
gzip-header-parsing part of the decompress_exec() function.  There was an
"original file name" field in the payload (with miscalculated length) and
zlib_inflate() returned Z_DATA_ERROR.  But after the fix similar to this
one all worked fine.
