Subject: RE: [PATCH] be2net: bug fix on returning an invalid nic descriptor

> -----Original Message-----
> From: Wei Yang []
> In function be_get_nic_desc(), it will go through the descriptor array
> returned from f/w. By comparing the desc_type field, it determines whether
> there is a nic descriptor in the array or not. In the case of no nic descriptor,
> this function should return NULL.
> The code may return an invalide descriptor, when there is no nic descriptor in
> the array and the desc_count is less than MAX_RESOURCE_DESC. In this
> case, even there is no nic descriptor, it will still return the lase descriptor
> since the i doesn't equal to MAX_RESOURCE_DESC.
> This patch fix this issue by returning the descriptor when find it and return
> NULL for other cases.
