[...] Your patch removes the initialisation of kern_sge32[i] when ioc->sgl[i].iov_len is zero. I think it should at least set the length to zero. Perhaps it's safest to pass max(ioc->sgl[i].iov_len, 1) as the length parameter to dma_alloc_coherent(). Ben. -- Ben Hutchings Once a job is fouled up, anything done to improve it makes it worse.
