uclinux: fix gzip header parsing in binfmt_flat.c
There are off-by-one errors in decompress_exec() when calculating the length of optional "original file name" and "comment" fields: the "ret" index is not incremented when terminating '\0' character is reached. The check of the buffer overflow (after an "extra-field" length was taken into account) is also fixed. I've encountered this off-by-one error when tried to reuse gzip-header-parsing part of the decompress_exec() function. There was an "original file name" field in the payload (with miscalculated length) and zlib_inflate() returned Z_DATA_ERROR. But after the fix similar to this one all worked fine.
