[Jens: fixed compile error with SCSI logging enabled] Signed-off-by: FUJITA Tomonori <fujita.tomonori@....ntt.co.jp> Signed-off-by: Douglas Gilbert <dougg@...que.net> Cc: Mike Christie <michaelc@...wisc.edu> Cc: James Bottomley <James.Bottomley@...senPartnership.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@...cle.com> It was fixed in Linux 4.1-rc1 by: commit 451a2886b6bf90e2fb378f7c46c655450fb96e81 Author: Al Viro <viro@...iv.linux.org.uk> Date: Sat Mar 21 20:08:18 2015 -0400 sg_start_req(): make sure that there's not too many elements in iovec unfortunately, allowing an arbitrary 16bit value means a possibility of overflow in the calculation of total number of pages in bio_map_user_iov() - we rely on there being no more than PAGE_SIZE members of sum in the first loop there. If that sum wraps around, we end up allocating too small array of pointers to pages and it's easy to overflow it in the second loop. X-Coverup: TINC (and there's no lumber cartel either) Cc: stable@...r.kernel.org # way, way back Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@...iv.linux.org.uk> commit fdc81f45e9f57858da6351836507fbcf1b7583ee Author: Al Viro <viro@...iv.linux.org.uk> Date: Sat Mar 21 20:25:30 2015 -0400 sg_start_req(): use import_iovec() Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@...iv.linux.org.uk> This has not been included in any stable branches yet. When backporting the fix to older kernel versions, the second commit can't be used. The first commit requires a naming fix-up: s/MAX_UIOVEC/UIO_MAXIOV/.
