[ 103/184] xhci: Make handover code more robust

From: Willy Tarreau
Date: Tue Jun 04 2013 - 18:44:37 EST

2.6.32-longterm review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Matthew Garrett <mjg@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit e955a1cd086de4d165ae0f4c7be7289d84b63bdc upstream.

My test platform (Intel DX79SI) boots reliably under BIOS, but frequently
crashes when booting via UEFI. I finally tracked this down to the xhci
handoff code. It seems that reads from the device occasionally just return
0xff, resulting in xhci_find_next_cap_offset generating a value that's
larger than the resource region. We then oops when attempting to read the
value. Sanity checking that value lets us avoid the crash.

I've no idea what's causing the underlying problem, and xhci still doesn't
actually *work* even with this, but the machine at least boots which will
probably make further debugging easier.

This should be backported to kernels as old as 2.6.31, that contain the
commit 66d4eadd8d067269ea8fead1a50fe87c2979a80d "USB: xhci: BIOS handoff
and HW initialization."
