Can someone provide more details of what this is fixing? I emailed
Richard directly earlier asking for details but maybe I'm in his
blacklist :)

My reading is that if offset is negative we can end up writing to some
address before the beginning of a buffer, but I don't know how offset
could be negative (it's a gsize, which I think is always unsigned).

Maybe the simple fix is to check msg->msnslp_header.offset directly (a
long long), but I'm curious how that could be negative.
