[PATCH 4.2 082/134] NFS: nfs_set_pgio_error sometimes misses errors

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Sat Sep 26 2015 - 17:01:30 EST

4.2-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Trond Myklebust <trond.myklebust@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit e9ae58aeee8842a50f7e199d602a5ccb2e41a95f upstream.

We should ensure that we always set the pgio_header's error field
if a READ or WRITE RPC call returns an error. The current code depends
on 'hdr->good_bytes' always being initialised to a large value, which
is not always done correctly by callers.
When this happens, applications may end up missing important errors.
