Subject: [PATCH 6/7] xen-blkback: read from indirect descriptors only once
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

Since indirect descriptors are in memory shared with the frontend, the
frontend could alter the first_sect and last_sect values after they have
been validated but before they are recorded in the request.  This may
result in I/O requests that overflow the foreign page, possibly
overwriting local pages when the I/O request is executed.

When parsing indirect descriptors, only read first_sect and last_sect
once.

This is part of XSA155.
