Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.14 38/46] scsi: ibmvfc: Avoid unnecessary port relogin
From: Brian King <>

[ Upstream commit 09dd15e0d9547ca424de4043bcd429bab6f285c8 ]

Following an RSCN, ibmvfc will issue an ADISC to determine if the
underlying target has changed, comparing the SCSI ID, WWPN, and WWNN to
determine how to handle the rport in discovery. However, the comparison
of the WWPN and WWNN was performing a memcmp between a big endian field
against a CPU endian field, which resulted in the wrong answer on LE
systems. This was observed as unexpected errors getting logged at boot
time as targets were getting relogins when not needed.
