3.5.7u1 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Kees Cook <keescook@chromium.org>

commit 12176503366885edd542389eed3aaf94be163fdb upstream.

The compat ioctl for VIDEO_SET_SPU_PALETTE was missing an error check
while converting ioctl arguments.  This could lead to leaking kernel
stack contents into userspace.

Patch extracted from existing fix in grsecurity.
