C: avro_schema_from_json ignores length parameter 

                 Key: AVRO-980
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-980
             Project: Avro
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: c
    Affects Versions: 1.6.1
         Environment: Linux x86_64 (Ubuntu 11.10)
Avro 1.6.1
GCC 4.6.1
cmake 2.8.5
            Reporter: Michael Cooper
            Priority: Minor

The function avro_schema_from_json() takes in a const char* and a length parameter, but it
appears that the length parameter is ignored.

We have a project where the schema is a binary resource compiled into the executable, and
is not guaranteed to have a null terminator at the end.
This did not appear to be an issue because the function had a length parameter.

The other day, It kept throwing errors about characters that were not in the file at all.
Suspecting it was running off the end of the file, I had a look at the Avro-C code and found
that even though the function takes in a length parameter, it does not use it and expects
a null terminator.
