3.19.8-ckt13 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Qiu Peiyang <peiyangx.qiu@xxxxxxxxx>

commit f36d1be2930ede0a1947686e1126ffda5d5ee1bb upstream.

When we do cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/printk_formats, we hit kernel
panic at t_show.

Kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal exception

When the first time find_next calls find_next_mod_format, it should
iterate the trace_bprintk_fmt_list to find the first print format of
the module. However in current code, start_index is smaller than *pos
at first, and code will not iterate the list. Latter container_of will
get the wrong address with former v, which will cause mod_fmt be a
meaningless object and so is the returned mod_fmt->fmt.

This patch will fix it by correcting the start_index. After fixed,
when the first time calls find_next_mod_format, start_index will be
equal to *pos, and code will iterate the trace_bprintk_fmt_list to
get the right module printk format, so is the returned mod_fmt->fmt.
