Buffer overflow in the niu_get_ethtool_tcam_all function in
drivers/net/niu.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.36-rc4 allows local users
to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via
the ETHTOOL_GRXCLSRLALL ethtool command.

certain sizes. A local attacker could perform malicious ioctl calls that
could crash the system, leading to a denial of service.
