Subject[PATCH] Missing critical phys_to_virt in lib/swiotlb.c
From
Date
From: David Moore <dcm@acm.org>

Adds missing call to phys_to_virt() in the
lib/swiotlb.c:swiotlb_sync_sg() function. Without this change, a kernel
panic will always occur whenever a SWIOTLB bounce buffer from a
scatter-gather list gets synced.

This change was originally part of a larger patch by Jan Beulich, which
was more extensive and doesn't look destined to make it into 2.6.20:
http://kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.20-rc6/2.6.20-rc6-mm3/broken-out/ia64-swiotlb-bug-fixes.patch

However, considering the severity of this one-liner bug, I would like to
request that this simplified patch make it into 2.6.20, despite how
close we are to the final cut. It fixes real crashes:
