Subject[PATCH 4.19 72/85] s390/zcrypt: fix specification exception on z196 during ap probe
4.19-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Harald Freudenberger <>

commit 8f9aca0c45322a807a343fc32f95f2500f83b9ae upstream.

The older machines don't have the QCI instruction available.
With support for up to 256 crypto cards the probing of each
card has been extended to check card ids from 0 up to 255.
For machines with QCI support there is a filter limiting the
range of probed cards. The older machines (z196 and older)
don't have this filter and so since support for 256 cards is
in the driver all cards are probed. However, these machines
also require to have the card id fit into 6 bits. Exceeding
this limit results in a specification exception which happens
on every kernel startup even when there is no crypto configured
and used at all.

This fix limits the range of probed crypto cards to 64 if
there is no QCI instruction available to obey to the older
ap architecture and so fixes the specification exceptions
on z196 machines.
