[Xen-devel] [PATCH] bunzip2: off by one in get_next_block()

"origPtr" is used as an offset into the bd->dbuf[] array.  That array is
allocated in start_bunzip() and has "bd->dbufSize" number of elements so
the test here should be >= instead of >.

Later we check "origPtr" again before using it as an offset so I don't
know if this bug can be triggered in real life.
