We should make sure off + size < sizeof(struct rte_mbuf) to avoid
possible out-of-bounds access of free_space array, there is no issue
currently due to the low bits of free_flags (which is adjacent to
free_space) are always set to 0. But we shouldn't rely on it since it's
fragile and layout of struct mbuf_dyn_shm may be changed in the future.
This patch adds boundary check explicitly to avoid potential risk of
out-of-bounds access.

Fixes: 4958ca3a443a ("mbuf: support dynamic fields and flags")

I suggest to change the title in:
mbuf: fix out-of-bounds access at dyn field register

Thomas, as Xiaolong pointed-out, it fixes a bug in the code but there is
no impact. I let you decide if it should be tagged as a fix or not, and
if it should be backported. I'll tend to say yes.
