2.6.25-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Eric Sandeen <sandeen@redhat.com>

This is a trivial backport of the following upstream commits:

- bd39597cbd42a784105a04010100e27267481c67 (ext2)
- cdbf6dba28e8e6268c8420857696309470009fd9 (ext3)
- 9d9f177572d9e4eba0f2e18523b44f90dd51fe74 (ext4)

This addresses CVE-2008-3528

ext[234]: Avoid printk floods in the face of directory corruption

Note: some people thinks this represents a security bug, since it
might make the system go away while it is printing a large number of
console messages, especially if a serial console is involved.  Hence,
it has been assigned CVE-2008-3528, but it requires that the attacker
either has physical access to your machine to insert a USB disk with a
corrupted filesystem image (at which point why not just hit the power
button), or is otherwise able to convince the system administrator to
mount an arbitrary filesystem image (at which point why not just
include a setuid shell or world-writable hard disk device file or some
such).  Me, I think they're just being silly. --tytso

Likewise, please change the description to:

"A very large directory with many read failures (either due to storage
problems, or due to invalid size & blocks from corruption) will generate
a printk storm as the filesystem continues to try to read all the
blocks. This flood of messages can tie up the box until it is complete -
which may be a very long time, especially for very large corrupted values.

This is fixed by only reporting the corruption once each time we try to
read the directory."

Thanks, Eugene
