[PATCH] posix-timer: don't call idr_find() w/ out-of-range ID

From: Tejun Heo
Date: Wed Feb 20 2013 - 17:40:34 EST

When idr_find() is fed a negative ID, it used to look up the ID
ignoring the sign bit before recent ("idr: remove MAX_IDR_MASK and
move left MAX_IDR_* into idr.c") patch, and triggers WARN_ON_ONCE()
after it.

__lock_timer() feeds timer_id from userland directly to idr_find()
without sanitizing it which can trigger the above malfunctions. Add a
range check on @timer_id before invoking idr_find() in __lock_timer().

While timer_t is defined as int by all archs at the moment, Andrew
worries that it may be defined as a larger type later on. Make the
test cover larger integers too so that it at least is guaranteed to
not return the wrong timer.
