Subject: [PATCH 5.0 064/238] mmc:fix a bug when max_discard is 0

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


From: Jiong Wu <>

commit d4721339dcca7def04909a8e60da43c19a24d8bf upstream.

The original purpose of the code I fix is to replace max_discard with
max_trim if max_trim is less than max_discard. When max_discard is 0
we should replace max_discard with max_trim as well, because
max_discard equals 0 happens only when the max_do_calc_max_discard
process is overflowed, so if mmc_can_trim(card) is true, max_discard
should be replaced by an available max_trim.
However, in the original code, there are two lines of code interfere
the right process.
1) if (max_discard && mmc_can_trim(card))
when max_discard is 0, it skips the process checking if max_discard
needs to be replaced with max_trim.
2) if (max_trim < max_discard)
the condition is false when max_discard is 0. it also skips the process
that replaces max_discard with max_trim, in fact, we should replace the
0-valued max_discard with max_trim.
