[dm-devel] [patch 04/73] dm crypt: use bio_add_page



2.6.23-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
------------------
From: Milan Broz <mbroz redhat com>

patch 91e106259214b40e992a58fb9417da46868e19b2 in mainline.

Fix possible max_phys_segments violation in cloned dm-crypt bio.

In write operation dm-crypt needs to allocate new bio request
and run crypto operation on this clone. Cloned request has always
the same size, but number of physical segments can be increased
and violate max_phys_segments restriction.

This can lead to data corruption and serious hardware malfunction.
This was observed when using XFS over dm-crypt and at least
two HBA controller drivers (arcmsr, cciss) recently.

Fix it by using bio_add_page() call (which tests for other
restrictions too) instead of constructing own biovec.

All versions of dm-crypt are affected by this bug.
