Gustavo A. R. Silva Dec. 14, 2018, 4:47 p.m. UTC and port are 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/message/fusion/mptctl.c:1360 mptctl_getiocinfo() warn: potential spectre issue 'ioc->pfacts' [r]
drivers/message/fusion/mptctl.c:2788 mptctl_hp_targetinfo() warn: potential spectre issue 'hd->sel_timeout' [r] (local cap)

Fix this by sanitizing  both and port before using them to
index ioc->pfacts and hd->sel_timeout.

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].
