[Qemu-trivial] [PATCH] qemu-char: Fix potential out of bounds access to

From: Stefan Weil
Subject: [Qemu-trivial] [PATCH] qemu-char: Fix potential out of bounds access to local arrays
Date: Mon, 30 Sep 2013 23:04:49 +0200

Latest gcc-4.8 supports a new option -fsanitize=address which activates
an AddressSanitizer. This AddressSanitizer stops the QEMU system emulation
very early because two character arrays of size 8 are potentially written
with 9 bytes.

Commit 6ea314d91439741e95772dfbab98b4135e04bebb added the code.

There is no obvious reason why width or height could need 8 characters,
so reduce it to 7 characters which together with the terminating '\0'
fit into the arrays.

Cc: qemu-stable <address@hidden>
Signed-off-by: Stefan Weil <address@hidden>

This is not a critical error because only other local variables can be
overwritten with a null byte, but the fix is also very simple, so maybe
this is a candidate for qemu-stable (1.5 and 1.6?).
