>Description:
1) Buffer overflow

gssd_syscall contains the following code:

char path[MAXPATHLEN];
[..]
error = copyinstr(uap->path, path, sizeof(path), NULL);
[..]
strcpy(sun.sun_path, path);

sun_path's size is 104 while MAXPATHLEN expands to 1024, thus providing string large enough will cause buffer overflow.

2) Use after free

error = priv_check(td, PRIV_NFS_DAEMON);
if (error)
    return (error);

if (kgss_gssd_handle)
    CLNT_DESTROY(kgss_gssd_handle);

error = copyinstr(uap->path, path, sizeof(path), NULL);
if (error)
    return (error);
[..]
kgss_gssd_handle = clnt_reconnect_create(nconf,[..]

So one "correct" call of gssd_syscall will set kgss_gssd_handle, the first call with incorrect path will invalidate it and the second call will cause panic.
>How-To-Repeat:
Using the following code:
int
main(int argc, char **argv)
{
	gssd_syscall(argv[1]);
	return (0);
}


1) Buffer overflow
./a.out `perl -e 'print("A"x1000)'`

2) Use after free

./a.out `perl -e 'print("A"x100)'`; ./a.out `perl -e 'print("A"x2000)'`; ./a.out `perl -e 'print("A"x2000)'`

>Fix:
Replace MAXPATHLEN with sizeof(sun.sun_path) and move CLNT_DESTROY(kgss_gssd_handle) after copyinstr.
