Subject: [PATCH 3.10 78/85] bio-integrity: Fix bio_integrity_verify segment start bug

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


From: Nicholas Bellinger <>

commit 5837c80e870bc3b12ac6a98cdc9ce7a9522a8fb6 upstream.

This patch addresses a bug in bio_integrity_verify() code that has
been causing DIF READ verify operations to be silently skipped.

The issue is that bio->bi_idx will have been incremented within
bio_advance() code in the normal blk_update_request() ->
req_bio_endio() completion path, and bio_integrity_verify() is
using bio_for_each_segment() which starts the bio segment walk
at the current bio->bi_idx.

So instead use bio_for_each_segment_all() to always start the bio
segment walk from zero, regardless of the current bio->bi_idx
value after bio_advance() has been called.

(Context change for v3.10.y -> v3.13.y code - nab)
