Memory leak in the seq_file implemenetation in the SCSI procfs
interface (sg.c) in Linux kernel 2.6.13 and earlier allows local users
to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via certain repeated
reads from the /proc/scsi/sg/devices file, which is not properly
handled when the next() iterator returns NULL or an error.
