Default APPLIED: irda: validate peer name and attribute lengths

Length fields provided by a peer for names and attributes may

prevent stack buffer overflows.

The fix for this CVE has hit lucid and later via mainline and stable
updates. Following this email is a patch for hardy, lucid/fsl-imx51,
and maverick/ti-omap4. This is a simple cherry-pick of the upsteam change.

Proposing for hardy, lucid/fsl-imx51, and maverick/ti-omap4.
