Subject[PATCH 3.16 092/134] libata: reject passthrough WRITE SAME requests
3.16.47-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de>

commit c6ade20f5e50e188d20b711a618b20dd1d50457e upstream.

The WRITE SAME to TRIM translation rewrites the DATA OUT buffer. While
the SCSI code accomodates for this by passing a read-writable buffer
userspace applications don't cater for this behavior. In fact it can
be used to rewrite e.g. a readonly file through mmap and should be
considered as a security fix.

[bwh: Backported to 3.16:
- Open-code blk_rq_is_passthrough()
- We don't distinguish which field is invaid so goto invalid_fld
- Adjust context]
