Subject[PATCH 5.2 132/137] dm raid: fix updating of max_discard_sectors limit
From: Ming Lei <>

commit c8156fc77d0796ba2618936dbb3084e769e916c1 upstream.

Unit of 'chunk_size' is byte, instead of sector, so fix it by setting
the queue_limits' max_discard_sectors to rs->md.chunk_sectors. Also,
rename chunk_size to chunk_size_bytes.

Without this fix, too big max_discard_sectors is applied on the request
queue of dm-raid, finally raid code has to split the bio again.

This re-split done by raid causes the following nested clone_endio:

1) one big bio 'A' is submitted to dm queue, and served as the original

2) one new bio 'B' is cloned from the original bio 'A', and .map()
is run on this bio of 'B', and B's original bio points to 'A'

3) raid code sees that 'B' is too big, and split 'B' and re-submit
the remainded part of 'B' to dm-raid queue via generic_make_request().

4) now dm will handle 'B' as new original bio, then allocate a new
clone bio of 'C' and run .map() on 'C'. Meantime C's original bio
points to 'B'.

5) suppose now 'C' is completed by raid directly, then the following
clone_endio() is called recursively:

->clone_endio(B) #B is original bio of 'C'

'A' can be big enough to make hundreds of nested clone_endio(), then
stack can be corrupted easily.
