Subject[PATCH] staging: rtl8723bs: add missing range check on id
From: Colin Ian King <>

The value of the u8 id needs to be upper bounds checked to ensure
the cam_cache array on the adapter dvobj is not indexed outside
of the allowed range of 0..TOTAL_CAM_ENTRY-1. This can currently
occur if id is >= TOTAL_CAM_ENTRY when calling write_cam_from_cache.
Fix this by adding an upper range check.

Detected by CoverityScan, CID#1428464 ("Use of untrusted scalar value")

Fixes: 554c0a3abf21 ("staging: Add rtl8723bs sdio wifi driver")
