crypto: authenc - fix parsing key with misaligned rta_len

commit 8f9c4693 upstream.

Keys for "authenc" AEADs are formatted as an rtattr containing a 4-byte
'enckeylen', followed by an authentication key and an encryption key.
crypto_authenc_extractkeys() parses the key to find the inner keys.

However, it fails to consider the case where the rtattr's payload is
longer than 4 bytes but not 4-byte aligned, and where the key ends
before the next 4-byte aligned boundary.  In this case, 'keylen -=
RTA_ALIGN(rta->rta_len);' underflows to a value near UINT_MAX.  This
causes a buffer overread and crash during crypto_ahash_setkey().

Fix it by restricting the rtattr payload to the expected size.

Reproducer using AF_ALG:

	#include <linux/if_alg.h>
	#include <linux/rtnetlink.h>
	#include <sys/socket.h>

	int main()
		int fd;
		struct sockaddr_alg addr = {
			.salg_type = "aead",
			.salg_name = "authenc(hmac(sha256),cbc(aes))",
		struct {
			struct rtattr attr;
			__be32 enckeylen;
			char keys[1];
		} __attribute__((packed)) key = {
			.attr.rta_len = sizeof(key),
			.attr.rta_type = 1 /* CRYPTO_AUTHENC_KEYA_PARAM */,

		fd = socket(AF_ALG, SOCK_SEQPACKET, 0);
		bind(fd, (void *)&addr, sizeof(addr));
		setsockopt(fd, SOL_ALG, ALG_SET_KEY, &key, sizeof(key));

It caused:
