+Subject: [PATCH] listdir(): reuse a single buffer to store every file name to
+ display
+
+Allocating a new buffer for each entry is useless.
+
+And as these buffers are allocated on the stack, on systems with a
+small stack size, with many entries, the limit can easily be reached,
+causing a stack exhaustion and aborting the user session.
+
+Reported by Antonio Morales from the GitHub Security Lab team, thanks!
