Subject: [PATCH 1/7] mpt3sas: Memset config_cmds.reply buffer with zeros
Date: Thu, 30 Jul 2020 13:33:43 +0530
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

Currently config_cmds.reply buffer is not memset to zero before
posting config page request message.
In some cases, for the current config request, the previous config
reply is getting processed and we will observe PageType mismatch
between request to reply buffer. It will be difficult to debug this
type of issue and it confuses by thinking that HBA Firmware itself
posted the wrong config reply.
So it is better to memset the config_cmds.reply buffer with zeros
before issuing the config request.
