Description Mark J. Cox 2005-01-25 11:26:12 UTC
OGAWA Hirofumi noticed that the table sizes in nls_ascii.c were incorrectly set
to 128 instead of 256 and that it could lead to a denial of service (oops).  

Patch is available from upstream:
http://linux.bkbits.net:8080/linux-2.6/cset@41e2bfbeOiXFga62XrBhzm7Kv9QDmQ
also included in patch from Alan, 2.6.10-ac9
