From
Subject[PATCH] SOUND: usb/endpoint, fix dangling pointer use
Date
Stanse found that in snd_usb_parse_audio_endpoints, there is a
dangling pointer dereference. When snd_usb_parse_audio_format fails,
fp is freed, and continue invoked. On the next loop, there is
"fp && fp->altsetting == 1 && fp->channels == 1" test, but fp is set
from the last iteration (but is bogus) and thus ilegally dereferenced.

Set fp to NULL before "continue".
