Description Andrej Nemec 2016-05-09 11:38:21 UTC
 When a buffer is being dequeued using VIDIOC_DQBUF IOCTL, the exact buffer which will be dequeued is not known until the buffer has been removed from the queue. The number of planes is specific to a buffer, not to the queue.
This does lead to the situation where multi-plane buffers may be requested and queued with n planes, but VIDIOC_DQBUF IOCTL may be passed an argument struct with fewer planes.
__fill_v4l2_buffer() however uses the number of planes from the dequeued videobuf2 buffer, overwriting kernel memory (the m.planes array allocated in video_usercopy() in v4l2-ioctl.c)  if the user provided fewer planes than the dequeued buffer had.
