Subject: [patch 04/31] gdth: fix oops in gdth_copy_cmd()
Date: Mon, 19 Mar 2007 14:37:36 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20070319213736.GF9261@kroah.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20070319213647.GB9261@kroah.com>

[-- Attachment #1: SCSI-gdth-fix-oops-in-gdth_copy_cmd.patch --]
[-- Type: text/plain, Size: 1780 bytes --]

-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

Recent alterations to the gdth_fill_raw_cmd() path no longer set the
sg_ranz field for zero transfer commands. However, this field is used
lower down in the function to initialise ha->cmd_len to the size of
the firmware packet.  If this uninitialised field contains a bogus
value, ha->cmd_len can become much larger than the actual firmware
packet and end up oopsing in gdth_copy_cmd() as it tries to copy this
huge packet to the device (usually because it runs into an unallocated
page).

The fix is to initialise the sg_ranz field to zero at the start of
gdth_fill_raw_cmd().
