lib/string_helpers.c: fix infinite loop in string_get_size()
Some string_get_size() calls (e.g.: string_get_size(1, 512, STRING_UNITS_10, ..., ...) string_get_size(15, 64, STRING_UNITS_10, ..., ...) ) result in an infinite loop. The problem is that if size is equal to divisor[units]/blk_size and is smaller than divisor[units] we'll end up with size == 0 when we start doing sf_cap calculations: For string_get_size(1, 512, STRING_UNITS_10, ..., ...) case: ... remainder = do_div(size, divisor[units]); -> size is 0, remainder is 1 remainder *= blk_size; -> remainder is 512 ... size *= blk_size; -> size is still 0 size += remainder / divisor[units]; -> size is still 0 The caller causing the issue is sd_read_capacity(), the problem was noticed on Hyper-V, such weird size was reported by host when scanning collides with device removal. This is probably a separate issue worth fixing, this patch is intended to prevent the library routine from infinite looping.
