The implementation of certain splice_write file operations in the
Linux kernel before 3.16 does not enforce a restriction on the maximum
size of a single file, which allows local users to cause a denial of
service (system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a
crafted splice system call, as demonstrated by use of a file
descriptor associated with an ext4 filesystem.
