commit: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=4fb3c69854b01fd8f6483a8dbbb73d05ef26e96a
branch: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

Fixes CVE-2019-9755: An integer underflow issue exists in ntfs-3g 2017.3.23.
A local attacker could potentially exploit this by running /bin/ntfs-3g with
specially crafted arguments from a specially crafted directory to cause a
heap buffer overflow, resulting in a crash or the ability to execute
arbitrary code.  In installations where /bin/ntfs-3g is a setuid-root
binary, this could lead to a local escalation of privileges.

+Subject: [PATCH] Fixed reporting an error when failed to build the mountpoint
+
+The size check was inefficient because getcwd() uses an unsigned int
+argument.
