From: Dan Carpenter <error27@gmail.com>

gdth_ioctl_alloc() takes the size variable as an int.
copy_from_user() takes the size variable as an unsigned long.
gen.data_len and gen.sense_len are unsigned longs.
On x86_64 longs are 64 bit and ints are 32 bit.

We could pass in a very large number and the allocation would truncate
the size to 32 bits and allocate a small buffer.  Then when we do the
copy_from_user(), it would result in a memory corruption.
