3.13.11-ckt18 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Grazvydas Ignotas <notasas at gmail.com>

commit 9cb12d7b4ccaa976f97ce0c5fd0f1b6a83bc2a75 upstream.

For whatever reason, generic_access_phys() only remaps one page, but
actually allows to access arbitrary size.  It's quite easy to trigger
large reads, like printing out large structure with gdb, which leads to a
crash.  Fix it by remapping correct size.

Fixes: 28b2ee20c7cb ("access_process_vm device memory infrastructure")
