Description ghuckriede 2020-01-16 15:03:32 UTC

Through code inspection it was discovered that some 'for' loops in the ath module can cause an array to go out of bounds. 

See the following files for reference:
Similar issue with the following 2 files:

In the 'for' loop at ah_eeprom_v4k.c:243, ctlEdges is accesses with index 'j' in the second dimension at ah_eeprom_v4k.c:253 and ah_eeprom_v4k.c:254.  'j' is looped up to 8 times (NUM_EDGES is defined as 8 at ah_eeprom_v4k.h:178) but ctlEdges is declared with 4 indices in the second dimension (ctrEdges declared at ah_eeprom_v4k.h:153 with  AR5416_4K_NUM_BAND_EDGES which is defined as 4 at ah_eeprom_v4k.h:50).

Perhaps the 'for' loop should only iterate AR5416_4K_NUM_BAND_EDGES times? Or not use 'j' for the ctlEdges index?
