[PATCH 3.12 169/206] USB: opticon: fix non-atomic allocation in write path

From: Jiri Slaby
Date: Tue Nov 18 2014 - 09:32:50 EST

From: Johan Hovold <johan@xxxxxxxxxx>

3.12-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


commit e681286de221af78fc85db9222b6a203148c005a upstream.

Write may be called from interrupt context so make sure to use
GFP_ATOMIC for all allocations in write.

Fixes: 0d930e51cfe6 ("USB: opticon: Add Opticon OPN2001 write support")
