    Subject[PATCH 20/97] USB: emi62: fix crash when trying to load EMI 6|2 firmware
    From: Clemens Ladisch <>

    commit ac06c06770bb8761b1f1f9bdf2f5420fa6d3e9fa upstream.

    While converting emi62 to use request_firmware(), the driver was also
    changed to use the ihex helper functions. However, this broke the loading
    of the FPGA firmware because the code tries to access the addr field of
    the EOF record which works with a plain array that has an empty last
    record but not with the ihex helper functions where the end of the data is
    signaled with a NULL record pointer, resulting in:

    BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at (null)
    IP: [<f80d248c>] emi62_load_firmware+0x33c/0x740 [emi62]

    This can be fixed by changing the loop condition to test the return value
    of ihex_next_binrec() directly (like in emi26.c).
