[PATCH 3.16 292/306] usb: gadget: f_fs: Fix use-after-free

From: Ben Hutchings
Date: Wed Feb 15 2017 - 19:17:28 EST

3.16.40-rc1 review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Lars-Peter Clausen <lars@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 38740a5b87d53ceb89eb2c970150f6e94e00373a upstream.

When using asynchronous read or write operations on the USB endpoints the
issuer of the IO request is notified by calling the ki_complete() callback
of the submitted kiocb when the URB has been completed.

Calling this ki_complete() callback will free kiocb. Make sure that the
structure is no longer accessed beyond that point, otherwise undefined
behaviour might occur.

- Adjust filename
- We only use kiocb::private, not kiocb::ki_flags]
