Subject[patch 003/104] USB: usbmon: fix read(2)
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Pete Zaitcev <zaitcev@redhat.com>
commit f1c0a2a3aff53698f4855968d576464041d49b39 upstream.

There's a bug in the usbmon binary reader: When using read() to fetch
the packets and a packet's data is partially read, the next read call
will once again return up to len_cap bytes of data. The b_read counter
is not regarded when determining the remaining chunk size.

So, when dumping USB data with "cat /dev/usbmon0 > usbmon.trace" while
reading from a USB storage device and analyzing the dump file
afterwards it will get out of sync after a couple of packets.
