[PATCH 3.16.y-ckt 095/118] USB: OHCI: Fix race between ED unlink and URB submission

From: Luis Henriques
Date: Wed Aug 12 2015 - 05:11:58 EST

3.16.7-ckt16 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Alan Stern <stern@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 7d8021c967648accd1b78e5e1ddaad655cd2c61f upstream.

This patch fixes a bug introduced by commit 977dcfdc6031 ("USB: OHCI:
don't lose track of EDs when a controller dies"). The commit changed
ed_state from ED_UNLINK to ED_IDLE too early, before finish_urb() had
been called. The user-visible consequence is that the driver
occasionally crashes or locks up when an URB is submitted while
another URB for the same endpoint is being unlinked.

This patch moves the ED state change later, to the right place. The
drawback is that now we may unnecessarily execute some instructions
multiple times when a controller dies. Since controllers dying is an
exceptional occurrence, a little wasted time won't matter.
