[PATCH 3.16.y-ckt 84/94] net/mlx4: Copy/set only sizeof struct mlx4_eqe bytes

3.16.7-ckt20 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Carol L Soto <clsoto@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit c02b05011fadf8e409e41910217ca689f2fc9d91 upstream.

When doing memcpy/memset of EQEs, we should use sizeof struct
mlx4_eqe as the base size and not caps.eqe_size which could be bigger.

If caps.eqe_size is bigger than the struct mlx4_eqe then we corrupt
data in the master context.

When using a 64 byte stride, the memcpy copied over 63 bytes to the
slave_eq structure. This resulted in copying over the entire eqe of
interest, including its ownership bit -- and also 31 bytes of garbage
into the next WQE in the slave EQ -- which did NOT include the ownership
bit (and therefore had no impact).

However, once the stride is increased to 128, we are overwriting the
ownership bits of *three* eqes in the slave_eq struct. This results
in an incorrect ownership bit for those eqes, which causes the eq to
seem to be full. The issue therefore surfaced only once 128-byte EQEs
started being used in SRIOV and (overarchitectures that have 128/256
byte cache-lines such as PPC) - e.g after commit 77507aa249ae
"net/mlx4_core: Enable CQE/EQE stride support".
