Default mpt2sas: prevent heap overflows and unchecked reads, CVE-2011-1494

From: Dan Rosenberg <drosenberg@vsecurity.com>

CVE-2011-1494

BugLink: http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/787145

Released until now with stable versions 2.6.32.40, 2.6.33.13, 2.6.38.6

At two points in handling device ioctls via /dev/mpt2ctl, user-supplied
length values are used to copy data from userspace into heap buffers
without bounds checking, allowing controllable heap corruption and
subsequently privilege escalation.

Additionally, user-supplied values are used to determine the size of a
copy_to_user() as well as the offset into the buffer to be read, with no
bounds checking, allowing users to read arbitrary kernel memory.
