Subject: [PATCH 4.14 74/80] block/swim: Fix array bounds check

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


From: Finn Thain <>

commit 7ae6a2b6cc058005ee3d0d2b9ce27688e51afa4b upstream.

In the floppy_find() function in swim.c is a call to
get_disk(swd->unit[drive].disk). The actual parameter to this call
can be a NULL pointer when drive == swd->floppy_count. This causes
an oops in get_disk().
