Doc Type: If docs needed, set a value
Doc Text:
An out-of-bounds flaw was found in the Industrial I/O Subsystem of the Linux kernel. A comparison for devnr limits is exceeded by one, where the current implementation allowed 0 to AD5755_NUM_CHANNELS, while the actual limit should have been till 'AD5755_NUM_CHANNELS - 1'. This could lead to an out of bounds write to pdata->dac[devnr]. The highest risk from this vulnerability is system availability.
