[PATCH 3.14 13/20] USB: serial: mxuport: fix use-after-free in probe error path

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon May 30 2016 - 18:08:26 EST

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


From: Johan Hovold <johan@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 9e45284984096314994777f27e1446dfbfd2f0d7 upstream.

The interface read and event URBs are submitted in attach, but were
never explicitly unlinked by the driver. Instead the URBs would have
been killed by usb-serial core on disconnect.

In case of a late probe error (e.g. due to failed minor allocation),
disconnect is never called and we could end up with active URBs for an
unbound interface. This in turn could lead to deallocated memory being
dereferenced in the completion callbacks.
