[PATCH 4.9 039/177] net/mlx5: Fix create autogroup prev initializer

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon Dec 18 2017 - 11:01:17 EST

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


From: Paul Blakey <paulb@xxxxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit af36370569eb37420e1e78a2e60c277b781fcd00 ]

The autogroups list is a list of non overlapping group boundaries
sorted by their start index. If the autogroups list wasn't empty
and an empty group slot was found at the start of the list,
the new group was added to the end of the list instead of the
beginning, as the prev initializer was incorrect.
When this was repeated, it caused multiple groups to have
overlapping boundaries.

Fixed that by correctly initializing the prev pointer to the
start of the list.
