Description mark wisner 2004-04-16 11:43:14 EDT
The following has be reported by IBM LTC:  
ipr driver should be using request_bufflen instead of bufflen in
queuecommandHardware Environment:

Software Environment:
RHEL 3 QU2 Beta

Additional Information:

The ipr driver is currently using scsi_cmd->bufflen in its
queuecommand routine.
The correct field to use is request_bufflen. Usually these values are
the same,
but if the eh thread gets invoked due to errors, test unit readies
would be sent
to the driver in which these are not the same and request_buffer is NULL,
resulting in the ipr driver calling pci_map_single will a NULL vaddr
and a stale
bufflen.Glen, please mirror this bug to Red Hat immediately. We would
like to get this 
into U2. Thanks.Created an attachment (id=3285)
