Subject[PATCH] staging: wilc1000: fix infinite loop and out-of-bounds access
If i < slot_id is initially true then it will remain true. Also,
as i is being decremented it will end up accessing memory out of

Fix this by incrementing *i* instead of decrementing it.

Addresses-Coverity-ID: 1468454 ("Infinite loop")
Fixes: faa657641081 ("staging: wilc1000: refactor scan() to free kmalloc
memory on failure cases")
Signed-off-by: Gustavo A. R. Silva <>

BTW... at first sight it seems to me that variables slot_id
and i should be of type unsigned instead of signed.
