From: Malcolm Priestley <tvboxspy at gmail.com>

BugLink: http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1698470

The driver attempts to alter memory that is mapped to PCI device.

This is because tx_fwinfo_8190pci points to skb->data

Move the pci_map_single to when completed buffer is ready to be mapped with
psdec is empty to drop on mapping error.
