[PATCH 1/4] luks: fix out-of-bounds copy of UUID

From: Patrick Steinhardt
Subject: [PATCH 1/4] luks: fix out-of-bounds copy of UUID
Date: Sat, 30 May 2020 14:25:06 +0200

When configuring a LUKS disk, we copy over the UUID from the LUKS header
into the new `grub_cryptodisk_t` structure via `grub_memcpy ()`. As size
we mistakenly use the size of the `grub_cryptodisk_t` UUID field, which
is guaranteed to be strictly bigger than the LUKS UUID field we're
copying. As a result, the copy always goes out-of-bounds and copies some
garbage from other surrounding fields. During runtime, this isn't
noticed due to the fact that we always NUL-terminate the UUID and thus
never hit the trailing garbage.

Fix the issue by using the size of the local stripped UUID field.
