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

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

From: Sasha Levin <sasha.levin@oracle.com>

commit 072f19b4bea31cdd482d79f805413f2f9ac9e233 upstream.

store_host_reset() has tried to re-invent the wheel to compare sysfs strings.
Unfortunately it did so poorly and never bothered to check the input from
userspace before overwriting stack with it, so something simple as:

echo "WoopsieWoopsie" >
/sys/devices/pseudo_0/adapter0/host0/scsi_host/host0/host_reset

would result in:

[  316.310101] Kernel panic - not syncing: stack-protector: Kernel stack is corrupted in: ffffffff81f5bac7

Fix this by uninventing whatever was going on there and just use sysfs_streq.

Bug introduced by 29443691 ("[SCSI] scsi: Added support for adapter and
firmware reset").
