SubjectRE: [PATCH] ipmi: Fix kernel panic at ipmi_ssif_thread()
Date
Hi Corey,

Thanks your feedback and suggestion. :)
I think you are right. It is better to allocate one new local variable to store i2c data and size to be send...
I create new patch in following according to your suggestion.
Could you help to review the patch again?

Subject: [PATCH] ipmi: Fix kernel panic at ipmi_ssif_thread()

msg_written_handler() may set ssif_info->multi_data to NULL
when using ipmitool to write fru.

Fix kernel panic at ipmi_ssif_thread() and incorrect
ssif_info->multi_pos by adding one local pointer i2c_data to store i2c
data and size to send before calling ssif_i2c_send().

With this change, can avoid concurrent access to ssif_info->multi_pos and
ssif_info->multi_data at msg_written_handler.
Because msg_written_handler can be called at any time after ssif_i2c_send().

This is incorrect. These values *must* be set before ssif_i2c_send() is done.
Once ssif_i2c_send() is called, msg_written_handler can be called at any time after that, including before where you moved the new code.

If I understand this correctly, I think you need to add a variable, maybe named "bytes_to_write" and do

bytes_to_write = ssif_info->multi_data + ssif_info->multi_pos;

before the comparison and pass bytes_to_write into ssif_i2c_send().

Thanks,
