aio: fix kernel memory disclosure in io_getevents() introduced in v3.10
commit edfbbf388f293d70bf4b7c0bc38774d05e6f711a upstream. A kernel memory disclosure was introduced in aio_read_events_ring() in v3.10 by commit a31ad380bed817aa25f8830ad23e1a0480fef797. The changes made to aio_read_events_ring() failed to correctly limit the index into ctx->ring_pages[], allowing an attacked to cause the subsequent kmap() of an arbitrary page with a copy_to_user() to copy the contents into userspace. This vulnerability has been assigned CVE-2014-0206. Thanks to Mateusz and Petr for disclosing this issue. This patch applies to v3.12+. A separate backport is needed for 3.10/3.11.
