[PATCH 2/2] mmc: block: Let MMC_IOC_MULTI_CMD return zero again for zero entries
From: Geert Uytterhoeven
Date: Wed Jul 05 2017 - 05:07:41 EST
With gcc 4.1.2:
drivers/mmc/core/block.c: In function âmmc_blk_ioctl_cmd_issueâ:
drivers/mmc/core/block.c:630: warning: âioc_errâ may be used uninitialized in this function
Indeed, if mq_rq->ioc_count is zero, an uninitialized value will be
stored in mq_rq->drv_op_result and passed to blk_end_request_all().
Can mq_rq->ioc_count be zero?
- mmc_blk_ioctl_cmd() sets ioc_count to 1, so this is safe,
- mmc_blk_ioctl_multi_cmd() obtains ioc_count from user space in
response to the MMC_IOC_MULTI_CMD ioctl, and does allow zero.
To avoid returning an uninitialized value, and as it is pointless to do
all this work when the MMC_IOC_MULTI_CMD ioctl is used with zero
entries, check for this early in mmc_blk_ioctl_multi_cmd(), and return
zero, like was returned before.
Fixes: 3ecd8cf23f88d5df ("mmc: block: move multi-ioctl() to use block layer")

Should mmc_blk_ioctl_multi_cmd() return -EINVAL instead for this case?
That would change behavior as seen from userspace, though.
Feel free to fold in the previous patch if deemed appropriate.
