Hello pespin, Neels Hofmeyr, Harald Welte, Jenkins Builder,

libmsc/db.c: fix potential integer overflow

The value of 'sms->user_data_len' is fetched from the database:

  sms->user_data_len = dbi_result_get_field_length(result, "user_data");

and this is where the problem is. As per the libdbi's documentation
(see 3.5.3), dbi_result_get_field_length() returns the length in
bytes of the value stored in the specified field:

  unsigned int dbi_result_get_field_length(dbi_result Result,
                                           const char *fieldname)

so 'unsigned int' is assigned to 'uint8_t', what could lead to an
integer overflow if the value is grather than 0xff. As a result,
if the database for some reason does contain such odd TP-UD,
the truncation of 'user_data' would be done incorrectly.

Let's avoid such direct assignment, and use a separate variable.
Also, let's warn user if TP-UDL value is grether than 140, as
per 3GPP TS 03.40.
