Subject[PATCH 4.14 056/115] block: bvec_nr_vecs() returns value for wrong slab
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Greg Edwards <>

[ Upstream commit d6c02a9beb67f13d5f14f23e72fa9981e8b84477 ]

In commit ed996a52c868 ("block: simplify and cleanup bvec pool
handling"), the value of the slab index is incremented by one in
bvec_alloc() after the allocation is done to indicate an index value of
0 does not need to be later freed.

bvec_nr_vecs() was not updated accordingly, and thus returns the wrong
value. Decrement idx before performing the lookup.
