Subject: Re: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 08/38] media: pci: ttpci: av7110: fix
 possible buffer overflow caused by bad DMA value in debiirq()

Hi!

I'm pretty sure hardware capable of manipulating memory can work
around any such checks, but...

This does not even do what it says. Compiler is still free to access
data[0] multiple times. It needs READ_ONCE() to be effective.
