This description could use a little work. ;)

Perhaps something like:

The am_hreq.opcount field in the xfs_attrmulti_by_handle() interface
is not bounded correctly. The opcount is used to determine the size
of the buffer required. The size is bounded, but can overflow and so
the size checks may not be sufficient to catch invalid opcounts.
Fix it by catching opcount values that would cause overflows before
calculating the size.

The code currently return E2BIG for an opcount that is too large.
I think this should also return E2BIG rather then ENOMEM. Does that
seem reasonable?

Cheers,

Dave.
