Hello David,

This is a single fix intended for net/linux-3.9 brought by Marek Lindner.
It ensures that the incoming originator message parsing routine does not
try to read beyond the packet boundary causing it to process random data.

This bug is in since a while..Please, consider sending this patch to stable.


Please pull or let me know if there is any problem!
Thank you,
	Antonio
