Subject: [PATCH v3 2/3] remoteproc: qcom_q6v5_mss: Validate modem blob firmware size before load
Date: Thu, 23 Jul 2020 01:40:46 +0530
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

The following mem abort is observed when one of the modem blob firmware
size exceeds the allocated mpss region. Fix this by restricting the copy
size to segment size using request_firmware_into_buf before load.

Err Logs:
Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address
Mem abort info:
Call trace:
