Re: general protection fault in usb_find_alt_setting

Thank you for the reply. I probably do not properly understand how
syzcaller works then. Can you please, have a look at my reasoning.
"[upstream] general protection fault in usb_find_alt_setting")
was not fixed. it was closed as invalid, so, afaiu, all the work has stopped for it.
So syzbot did not wait until the fixing commit reached all tested trees, and the
crash was not spotted again _after_ that.
Then I look at the bug:
"[upstream] general protection fault in usb_find_alt_setting (2)")
And I see the crash happens at the same place _and_ at the same code:
RIP: 0010:usb_find_alt_setting+0x38/0x310 drivers/usb/core/usb.c:231
Code: ... fd 48 8d 7b 04 48 b8 00 00 00 00 00 fc ff df 48 89 fa 48 c1 ea 03 <0f> b6 04 02 48 89 fa 83 e2 07 38 d0 7f 08 84 c0 0f 85 86 02 00 00
Code: ... fd 48 8d 7b 04 48 b8 00 00 00 00 00 fc ff df 48 89 fa 48 c1 ea 03 <0f> b6 04 02 48 89 fa 83 e2 07 38 d0 7f 08 84 c0 0f 85 a1 02 00
RIP: usb_find_alt_setting+0x38/0x310 drivers/usb/core/usb.c:231 RSP: ffff88005893f610
This makes me be sure these are the same bug (dup) which are fixed by the same
commit "USB: handle NULL config in usb_find_alt_setting()".
As I'm kinda a perfectionist, I would like to mark (bug id=4b88ff5aa6aa) as
fixed by this commit and not closed as invalid.
