Subject[patch 16/26] hptiop: avoid buffer overflow when returning sense data

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

From: HighPoint Linux Team <>
patch 0fec02c93f60fb44ba3a24a0d3e4a52521d34d3f in mainline.

avoid buffer overflow when returning sense data.

With current adapter firmware the driver is working but future firmware
updates may return sense data larger than 96 bytes, causing overflow on
scp->sense_buffer and a kernel crash.

This fix should be backported to earlier kernels.
