Subject: [PATCH] net: sfc: fix possible buffer overflow caused by bad DMA value in efx_siena_sriov_vfdi()

In efx_siena_sriov_vfdi():
  req = vf->buf.addr;

Because "vf->buf.addr" is mapped to coherent DMA (allocated in
efx_nic_alloc_buffer()), "req" is also mapped to DMA.

Then "req->op" is accessed in this function:
  if (req->op < VFDI_OP_LIMIT && vfdi_ops[req->op] != NULL) {
    rc = vfdi_ops[req->op](vf);

Because "req" is mapped to DMA, its data can be modified at any time by
malicious or malfunctioning hardware. In this case, the check 
"if (req->op < VFDI_OP_LIMIT)" can be passed, and then "req->op" can be
modified to cause buffer overflow when the driver accesses
"vfdi_ops[req->op]".

To fix this problem, "req->op" is assigned to a local variable, and then
the driver accesses this variable instead of "req->op".
