SubjectRe: [PATCH 3/4] scsi: qla2xxx: avoid printf format warning

On 3/4/19, 11:39 AM, "Arnd Bergmann" <> wrote:

Depending on the target architecture and configuration, both phys_addr_t
and dma_addr_t may be smaller than 'long long', so we get a warning when
printing either of them using the %llx format string:

drivers/scsi/qla2xxx/qla_iocb.c:1140:46: error: format '%llx' expects argument of type 'long long unsigned int', but argument 6 has type 'dma_addr_t' {aka 'unsigned int'} [-Werror=format=]

drivers/scsi/qla2xxx/qla_iocb.c:1180:29: error: format '%llx' expects argument of type 'long long unsigned int', but argument 7 has type 'dma_addr_t' {aka 'unsigned int'} [-Werror=format=]
"%s: sg[%x] (phys=%llx sglen=%x) ldma_sg_len: %x dif_bundl_len: %x ldma_needed: %x\n",

There are special %pad and %pap format strings in Linux that we could use here,
but since the driver already does 64-bit arithmetic on the values, using a
plain 'u64' seems more consistent here.

Note: A possible related issue may be that the driver possibly checks the
wrong kind of overflow: when an IOMMU is in use, buffers that cross a 32-bit
boundary in physical addresses would still be mapped into dma addresses
within the low 4GB space, so I suspect that we actually want to check
sg_dma_address() instead of sg_phys() here.

Fixes: 50b812755e97 ("scsi: qla2xxx: Fix DMA error when the DIF sg buffer crosses 4GB boundary")
