New Revision: 205655

  MFC r205654:
  The rmt client in GNU cpio could have a heap overflow when a malicious
  remote tape service returns deliberately crafted packets containing
  more data than requested.
  Fix this by checking the returned amount of data and bail out when it
  is more than what we requested.
