Subject[GIT PULL] SCSI fixes for 4.2-rc2
From
Date
Two fairly simple fixes: one is a change that causes us to have a very
low queue depth leading to performance issues and the other is a null
deref occasionally in tapes thanks to use after put.

The patch is available here:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jejb/scsi.git scsi-fixes

The short changelog is:

Jens Axboe (1):
scsi: fix host max depth checking for the 'queue_depth' sysfs interface

Seymour, Shane M (1):
st: null pointer dereference panic caused by use after kref_put by st_open

And the diffstat:

drivers/scsi/scsi_sysfs.c | 2 +-
drivers/scsi/st.c | 2 +-
2 files changed, 2 insertions(+), 2 deletions(-)

With full diffs below.
