Subject[PATCH 3.19.y-ckt 02/47] iio: adis_buffer: Fix out-of-bounds memory access
3.19.8-ckt15 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Lars-Peter Clausen <>

commit d590faf9e8f8509a0a0aa79c38e87fcc6b913248 upstream.

The SPI tx and rx buffers are both supposed to be scan_bytes amount of
bytes large and a common allocation is used to allocate both buffers. This
puts the beginning of the tx buffer scan_bytes bytes after the rx buffer.
The initialization of the tx buffer pointer is done adding scan_bytes to
the beginning of the rx buffer, but since the rx buffer is of type __be16
this will actually add two times as much and the tx buffer ends up pointing
after the allocated buffer.

Fix this by using scan_count, which is scan_bytes / 2, instead of
scan_bytes when initializing the tx buffer pointer.
