Subject[PATCH 5.5 002/120] IB/srp: Never use immediate data if it is disabled by a user
From: Sergey Gorenko <>

commit 0fbb37dd82998b5c83355997b3bdba2806968ac7 upstream.

Some SRP targets that do not support specification SRP-2, put the garbage
to the reserved bits of the SRP login response. The problem was not
detected for a long time because the SRP initiator ignored those bits. But
now one of them is used as SRP_LOGIN_RSP_IMMED_SUPP. And it causes a
critical error on the target when the initiator sends immediate data.

The ib_srp module has a use_imm_date parameter to enable or disable
immediate data manually. But it does not help in the above case, because
use_imm_date is ignored at handling the SRP login response. The problem is
definitely caused by a bug on the target side, but the initiator's
behavior also does not look correct. The initiator should not use
immediate data if use_imm_date is disabled by a user.

This commit adds an additional checking of use_imm_date at the handling of
SRP login response to avoid unexpected use of immediate data.
