Char: ipmi_bt_sm, fix infinite loop
commit a94cdd1f4d30f12904ab528152731fb13a812a16 upstream. In read_all_bytes, we do unsigned char i; ... bt->read_data[0] = BMC2HOST; bt->read_count = bt->read_data[0]; ... for (i = 1; i <= bt->read_count; i++) bt->read_data[i] = BMC2HOST; If bt->read_data[0] == bt->read_count == 255, we loop infinitely in the 'for' loop. Make 'i' an 'int' instead of 'char' to get rid of the overflow and finish the loop after 255 iterations every time.
