The ecryptfs_write_metadata_to_contents function in the eCryptfs
functionality in the Linux kernel 2.6.28 before 126.96.36.199 uses an
incorrect size when writing kernel memory to an eCryptfs file header,
which triggers an out-of-bounds read and allows local users to obtain
portions of kernel memory.
