Subject: [PATCH 4.2 119/134] IB/srp: Handle partial connection success correctly

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


From: Bart Van Assche <>

commit c257ea6f9f9aed0b173e0c2932bb8dac5612cdc6 upstream.

Avoid that the following kernel warning is reported if the SRP
target system accepts fewer channels per connection than what
was requested by the initiator system:
