Subject[ 28/54] cdc_ether: Ignore bogus union descriptor for RNDIS devices
3.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Bjørn Mork <bjorn@mork.no>

commit 6eddcb4c82883451aec3be1240f17793370fa62f upstream.

Some RNDIS devices include a bogus CDC Union descriptor pointing
to non-existing interfaces. The RNDIS code is already prepared
to handle devices without a CDC Union descriptor by hardwiring
the driver to use interfaces 0 and 1, which is correct for the
devices with the bogus descriptor as well. So we can reuse the
existing workaround.
