Subject[050/127] firewire: ohci: fix race in AR split packet handling
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Clemens Ladisch <clemens@ladisch.de>

commit a1f805e5e73a8fe166b71c6592d3837df0cd5e2e upstream.

When handling an AR buffer that has been completely filled, we assumed
that its descriptor will not be read by the controller and can be
overwritten. However, when the last received packet happens to end at
the end of the buffer, the controller might not yet have moved on to the
next buffer and might read the branch address later. If we overwrite
and free the page before that, the DMA context will either go dead
because of an invalid Z value, or go off into some random memory.

To fix this, ensure that the descriptor does not get overwritten by
using only the actual buffer instead of the entire page for reassembling
the split packet. Furthermore, to avoid freeing the page too early,
move on to the next buffer only when some data in it guarantees that the
controller has moved on.

This should eliminate the remaining firewire-net problems.
