Subject: [PATCH 3.14 112/114] libceph: gracefully handle large reply messages from the mon

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


From: Sage Weil <>

commit 73c3d4812b4c755efeca0140f606f83772a39ce4 upstream.

We preallocate a few of the message types we get back from the mon.  If we
get a larger message than we are expecting, fall back to trying to allocate
a new one instead of blindly using the one we have.
