Subject[PATCH 4.10 156/167] xprtrdma: Fix Read chunk padding
4.10-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Chuck Lever <>

commit 24abdf1be15c478e2821d6fc903a4a4440beff02 upstream.

When pad optimization is disabled, rpcrdma_convert_iovs still
does not add explicit XDR round-up padding to a Read chunk.

Commit 677eb17e94ed ("xprtrdma: Fix XDR tail buffer marshalling")
incorrectly short-circuited the test for whether round-up padding
is needed that appears later in rpcrdma_convert_iovs.

However, if this is indeed a regular Read chunk (and not a
Position-Zero Read chunk), the tail iovec _always_ contains the
chunk's padding, and never anything else.

So, it's easy to just skip the tail when padding optimization is
enabled, and add the tail in a subsequent Read chunk segment, if
