parentlib/rhashtable: consider param->min_size when setting initial table size (diff)
net: cxgb3_main: fix potential Spectre v1
t.qset_idx can be indirectly controlled by user-space, hence leading to a potential exploitation of the Spectre variant 1 vulnerability. This issue was detected with the help of Smatch: drivers/net/ethernet/chelsio/cxgb3/cxgb3_main.c:2286 cxgb_extension_ioctl() warn: potential spectre issue 'adapter->msix_info' Fix this by sanitizing t.qset_idx before using it to index adapter->msix_info Notice that given that speculation windows are large, the policy is to kill the speculation on the first load and not worry if it can be completed with a dependent load/store [1].
