Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.4 05/10] scsi: target/iblock: Fix protection error with blocks greater than 512B
From: Israel Rukshin <>

[ Upstream commit e4dc9a4c31fe10d1751c542702afc85be8a5c56a ]

The sector size of the block layer is 512 bytes, but integrity interval
size might be different (in case of 4K block size of the media). At the
initiator side the virtual start sector is the one that was originally
submitted by the block layer (512 bytes) for the Reftag usage. The
initiator converts the Reftag to integrity interval units and sends it to
the target. So the target virtual start sector should be calculated at
integrity interval units. prepare_fn() and complete_fn() don't remap
correctly the Reftag when using incorrect units of the virtual start
sector, which leads to the following protection error at the device:

"blk_update_request: protection error, dev sdb, sector 2048 op 0x0:(READ)
flags 0x10000 phys_seg 1 prio class 0"

To fix that, set the seed in integrity interval units.
