Subject: [PATCH 21/78] libceph: fix overflow in osdmap_apply_incremental()

commit a5506049500b30dbc5edb4d07a3577477c1f3643 upstream.

On 32-bit systems, a large `pglen' would overflow `pglen*sizeof(u32)'
and bypass the check ceph_decode_need(p, end, pglen*sizeof(u32), bad).
It would also overflow the subsequent kmalloc() size, leading to
out-of-bounds write.
