[PATCH 4.9 19/80] usb: hub: Do not attempt to autosuspend disconnected devices

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Thu May 18 2017 - 07:30:35 EST

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


From: Guenter Roeck <linux@xxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit f5cccf49428447dfbc9edb7a04bb8fc316269781 upstream.

While running a bind/unbind stress test with the dwc3 usb driver on rk3399,
the following crash was observed.

Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000218

1780 if (atomic_read(&intf->dev.power.usage_count) > 0)
1781 return -EBUSY;
1782 w |= intf->needs_remote_wakeup;

Code analysis shows that intf is set to NULL in usb_disable_device() prior
to setting actconfig to NULL. At the same time, usb_runtime_idle() does not
lock the usb device, and neither does any of the functions in the
traceback. This means that there is no protection against a race condition
where usb_disable_device() is removing dev->actconfig->interface[] pointers
while those are being accessed from autosuspend_check().

To solve the problem, synchronize and validate device state between
autosuspend_check() and usb_disconnect().
