    lib/mpi: mpi_read_raw_from_sgl(): don't include leading zero SGEs in nbytes · ab1e912e
    Nicolai Stange authored
    At the very beginning of mpi_read_raw_from_sgl(), the leading zeros of
    the input scatterlist are counted:
      lzeros = 0;
      for_each_sg(sgl, sg, ents, i) {
        if (/* sg contains nonzero bytes */)
        /* sg contains nothing but zeros here */
        lzeros = 0;
    Later on, the total number of trailing nonzero bytes is calculated by
    subtracting the number of leading zero bytes from the total number of input
      nbytes -= lzeros;
    However, since lzeros gets reset to zero for each completely zero leading
    sg in the loop above, it doesn't include those.
    Besides wasting resources by allocating a too large output buffer,
    this mistake propagates into the calculation of x, the number of
    leading zeros within the most significant output limb:
    What's more, the low order bytes of the output, equal in number to the
    extra bytes in nbytes, are left uninitialized.
    Fix this by adjusting nbytes for each completely zero leading scatterlist
