Subject: Re: [PATCH 1/2] IB/iSER: fix list iteration bug
Date: Mon, 03 Mar 2008 11:36:14 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <877igkxffl.fsf@confield.dd.xiranet.com> (raw)

The iteration through the list of "iser_device"s during device
lookup/creation is broken - it might result in an infinite loop if more
than 1 HCA is used with iSER. Use list_for_each_entry() instead of the
custom, flawed list iteration code.
