Subject: re: xprtrdma: Prevent inline overflow

Hi,

Static analysis with Coverity has found a potential issue with the
header size calculations in source net/sunrpc/xprtrdma/rpc_rdma.c in
functions rpcrdma_max_call_header_size and rpcrdma_max_reply_header_size.

The commit in question is relatively old:

commit 302d3deb20682a076e1ab551821cacfdc81c5e4f

    xprtrdma: Prevent inline overflow

The two issues are as follows:

Issue #1:

66 static unsigned int rpcrdma_max_call_header_size(unsigned int maxsegs)
 67 {
 68        unsigned int size;
 69
 70        /* Fixed header fields and list discriminators */

Unused value (UNUSED_VALUE)

 71        size = RPCRDMA_HDRLEN_MIN;
 72
 73        /* Maximum Read list size */
 74        size = maxsegs * rpcrdma_readchunk_maxsz * sizeof(__be32);
 75

should the size assignment on line 74 be instead:

	size += maxsegs * rpcrdma_readchunk_maxsz * sizeof(__be32);


Issue #2:

 89 static unsigned int rpcrdma_max_reply_header_size(unsigned int maxsegs)
 90 {
 91        unsigned int size;
 92
 93        /* Fixed header fields and list discriminators */

Unused value (UNUSED_VALUE)

 94        size = RPCRDMA_HDRLEN_MIN;
 95
 96        /* Maximum Write list size */
 97        size = sizeof(__be32);          /* segment count */

should the size assignment in line 97 be instead:

 	size += sizeof(__be32)?
