SubjectRe: scsi_report_lun_scan bug?
Patrick,

In my case, I have 16 luns for which report lun
command byte 3 has value 0x80. While doing the length
calculation
length = ((data[0] << 24) | (data[1] << 16) |
(data[2] << 8) | (data[3] << 0));
It calucates length as 0xffffff80 and actual number of
luns is calculated as 536870896. I just write small
program with signed and unsigned char array and it
does evaluate as 0xffffff80 as Andrew mentioned.
Thanks
Amit


#include<stdio.h>
main()
{
char x[10]={0x00,0x00,0x00,0x80};
char *p;
unsigned char *q;
int len;
int ulen;

p=(char *)x;
q=(unsigned char *) x;
len=((p[0] << 24) | (p[1] << 16) | (p[2] << 8)
| (p[3] <<0));
ulen=((q[0] << 24) |(q[1] << 16) | (q[2] << 8)
| (q[3] <<0));
printf("len= %d len=%x\n",len,len);
printf("ulen= %d ulen=%x\n",ulen,ulen);
}
