Yes, that's why a driver should verify that the endpoints it expects are
indeed present (and of the right type) already at probe.

In Andrey's fuzzing it's triggered by in a VM using the dummy_hcd
driver, but this could just as well be a (malicious) physical device
with unexpected descriptors.

If you grep for usb_find_common_endpoints you'll find a few examples
of how that function may be used (e.g. in drivers/usb/misc/usblcd.c).

The helper iterates of the endpoint descriptors of an interface
alt-setting and returns a descriptor for each requested type if found.
After a vetting of our current drivers I concluded that this would
cover the needs of the vast majority of drivers.

So for the driver in question you'd only need to add something like:

struct usb_endpoint_descriptor *int_in, *int_out;
int ret;

ret = usb_find_common_endpoints(interface->cur_altsetting,
NULL, NULL, &int_in, &int_out);
if (ret) {
dev_err(&interface->dev, "required endpoints not found\n");
return -ENODEV;
}

Then you can use int_in->bEndpointAddress etc. when initialising your
URBs.
