[PATCH 4.4 44/48] usb: gadget: serial: fix oops when data rxd after close

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


From: Stephen Warren <swarren@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit daa35bd95634a2a2d72d1049c93576a02711cb1a upstream.

When the gadget serial device has no associated TTY, do not pass any
received data into the TTY layer for processing; simply drop it instead.
This prevents the TTY layer from calling back into the gadget serial
driver, which will then crash in e.g. gs_write_room() due to lack of
gadget serial device to TTY association (i.e. a NULL pointer dereference).
