Integer overflow in the do_io_submit function in fs/aio.c in the Linux
kernel before 2.6.36-rc4-next-20100915 allows local users to cause a denial
of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted use of the
io_submit system call.
Tavis Ormandy discovered that the AIO subsystem did not correctly validate
certain parameters. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the system
or possibly gain root privileges.
