Good catch, agreed, [PATCH 1/2] while only focused on allocating the
right buffer size, it didn't ensure correct NULL termination of dst
buffer after the change. Sorry about the oversight.

Also it is correct to use the length of destination string (in bytes)
while null terminating than using length of source string (in UCS
chars which was the case earlier too).

NLS_MAX_CHARSET_SIZE is a bit too much, I think.

>From man utf-8:
UTF-8 encoded UCS characters may be up to six bytes long, however the
Unicode  standard  specifies no characters above 0x10ffff, so Unicode
characters can only be up to four bytes long in UTF-8.

There were a lot of discussion on this over the past weeks and we
really wanted to have common helpers to calculate the length instead
of going by assumptions. And since there are other filesystems that
would need this helper the decision was to generalise the helper and
make it part of common code (for e.g. fs/nls) and let other filesystems
such as jfs/ntfs make use of it. This patch is an interim measure to fix
the potential overflows.

Also, see discussions:

need to pass src_len to strlcpy as well.

Here is the updated patch with 2 changes (mostly nits) to
Guenter's version, NLS_MAX_CHARSET_SIZE set to 4, pass src_len
to strlcpy in non-unicode case.

The previous patch while fixing the buffer size, left out the NULL
termination that is based on length of src buffer(in UCS characters)
as it is. Fix this by using the length of dst buffer got from
cifs_strfromUCS_le() for NULL termination.
