s390: fix stfle zero padding
commit 4f18d869ffd056c7858f3d617c71345cf19be008 upstream. The stfle inline assembly returns the number of double words written (condition code 0) or the double words it would have written (condition code 3), if the memory array it got as parameter would have been large enough. The current stfle implementation assumes that the array is always large enough and clears those parts of the array that have not been written to with a subsequent memset call. If however the array is not large enough memset will get a negative length parameter, which means that memset clears memory until it gets an exception and the kernel crashes. To fix this simply limit the maximum length. Move also the inline assembly to an extra function to avoid clobbering of register 0, which might happen because of the added min_t invocation together with code instrumentation. The bug was introduced with commit 14375bc4eb8d ("[S390] cleanup facility list handling") but was rather harmless, since it would only write to a rather large array. It became a potential problem with commit 3ab121ab1866 ("[S390] kernel: Add z/VM LGR detection"). Since then it writes to an array with only four double words, while some machines already deliver three double words. As soon as machines have a facility bit within the fifth double a crash on IPL would happen.
