[Linux-kernel-mentees] [PATCH net] Bluetooth: Fix slab-out-of-bounds read in hci_le_direct_adv_report_evt()

`num_reports` is not being properly checked. A malformed event packet with
a large `num_reports` number makes hci_le_direct_adv_report_evt() read out
of bounds. Fix it.

I moved the initialization of `ev` out of the loop and restructured the
function a bit, since otherwise the check would look like:

	if (!num_reports || skb->len < num_reports * sizeof(struct hci_ev_le_direct_adv_info) + 1)
		return;

Therefore I used the similar structure with hci_inquiry_result_evt() etc.

hci_le_adv_report_evt() and hci_le_ext_adv_report_evt() also have the
same issue with `num_reports`, but I'm not sure how to perform the check
for them, since they use variable-length reports. Should we do something
like this? (take hci_le_adv_report_evt() as example:)

	if (!num_reports ||
	    skb->len < num_reports * (sizeof(*ev) + HCI_MAX_AD_LENGTH + 1) + 1)
		return;

Then how about hci_le_ext_adv_report_evt()? There is no such
`HCI_MAX_AD_LENGTH` restrictions on `ev->length` for it, I assume?

Would like to hear your opinion. Thank you!
