Subject: Re: [PATCH] scsi: sd: fix crashes in sd_resume_runtime

From: Miles Chen <>

> Fixing this crash by adding a check inside sd_resume_runtime() seems wrong to me. sd_probe() namely calls dev_set_drvdata(dev, sdkp) before

Thanks for your comment.

I hit this in v5.15-rc1 merge, I can still reproduce this with v5.15-rc5.
I found two ways to avoid the crash:
1) revert commit ed4246d37f3b ("scsi: sd: REQUEST SENSE for
BLIST_IGN_MEDIA_CHANGE devices in runtime_resume()") works for me.
2) adding the NULL point check in this patch.

>From the backtrace, dev_set_drvdata() is called after sd_resume_runtime()
is called. 

	 sd_resume_runtime() // crash here

  dev_set_drvdata(dev, sdkp); // sdkp is set later
