Subject[PATCH 1/1] megaraid_{mm,mbox}: fix a bug in reset handler
Date
From
Hi,

This patch has fix for a bug in the 'megaraid_reset_handler()'.

When abort failed, the driver gets reset handleer called. In the reset
handler, driver calls 'scsi_done()' callback for same SCSI command
packet (struct scsi_cmnd) multiple times if there are multiple SCSI
command packet in the pend_list. More over, if there are entry in the
pend_lsit with IOCTL packet associated, the driver returns it to wrong
free_list so that, in turn, the driver could end up with 'NULL pointer
dereference..' during I/O command building with incorrect resource.

Also, the patch contains several minor/cosmetic changes besides this.

Thank you,

Seokmann

+Release Date : Mon Apr 11 12:27:22 EST 2006 - Seokmann Ju
<sju@lsil.com>
+Current Version : 2.20.4.8 (scsi module), 2.20.2.6 (cmm module)
+Older Version : 2.20.4.7 (scsi module), 2.20.2.6 (cmm module)
+
+1. Fixed a bug in megaraid_reset_handler().
+ Customer reported "Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer
dereference
+ at virtual address 00000000" when system goes to reset condition
+ for some reason. It happened randomly.
+ Root Cause: in the megaraid_reset_handler(), there is
possibility not
+ returning pending packets in the pend_list if there are multiple
+ pending packets.
+ Fix: Made the change in the driver so that it will return all
packets
+ in the pend_list.
+
+2. Added change request.
+ As found in the following URL, rmb() only didn't help the
+ problem. I had to increase the loop counter to 0xFFFFFF. (6 F's)
+ http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-scsi&m=110971060502497&w=2
+
+ I attached a patch for your reference, too.
+ Could you check and get this fix in your driver?
+
+ Best Regards,
+ Jun'ichi Nomura
