[Linux-kernel-mentees] [PATCH] net/bluetooth: Fix slab-out-of-bounds read in hci_extended_inquiry_result_evt()

Check upon `num_rsp` is insufficient. A malformed event packet with a
large `num_rsp` number makes hci_extended_inquiry_result_evt() go out
of bounds. Fix it. Also, make `num_rsp` unsigned.

This patch fixes the following syzbot bug:
