Subject[PATCH 4.11 060/115] scsi: zero per-cmd private driver data for each MQ I/O
4.11-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Long Li <>

commit 1bad6c4a57efda0d5f5bf8a2403b21b1ed24875c upstream.

In lower layer driver's (LLD) scsi_host_template, the driver may
optionally ask SCSI to allocate its private driver memory for each
command, by specifying cmd_size. This memory is allocated at the end of
scsi_cmnd by SCSI. Later when SCSI queues a command, the LLD can use
scsi_cmd_priv to get to its private data.

Some LLD, e.g. hv_storvsc, doesn't clear its private data before use. In
this case, the LLD may get to stale or uninitialized data in its private
driver memory. This may result in unexpected driver and hardware

Fix this problem by also zeroing the private driver memory before
passing them to LLD.
