New Revision: 239867

  MFC 238077:
  Fix panics triggered by older mfiutil binaries run on the new mfi(4) driver.
  The new driver changed the size of the mfi_dcmd_frame structure in such a
  way that a MFI_IOC_PASSTHRU ioctl from an old amd64 binary is treated as an
  MFI_IOC_PASSTHRU32 ioctl in the new driver.  As a result, the user pointer
  is treated as the buffer length.  mfi_user_command() doesn't have a bounds
  check on the buffer length, so it passes a really big value to malloc()
  which panics when it tries to exhaust the kmem_map.  Fix this two ways:
  - Only honor MFI_IOC_PASSTHRU32 if the binary has the SV_ILP32 flag set,
    otherwise treat it as an unknown ioctl.
  - Add a bounds check on the buffer length passed by the user.  For now
    it fails any user attempts to use a buffer larger than 1MB.
  While here, fix a few other nits:
  - Remove an unnecessary check for a NULL return from malloc(M_WAITOK).
  - Use the ENOTTY errno for invalid ioctl commands instead of ENOENT.
