Subject[023/103] V4L/DVB: gspca - main: Fix a crash of some webcams on ARM arch
2.6.35-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Jason Wang <>

commit 882787ff8fdeb0be790547ee9b22b281095e95da upstream.

When plugging some webcams on ARM, the system crashes.
This is because we alloc buffer for an urb through usb_buffer_alloc,
the alloced buffer is already in DMA coherent region, so we should
set the flag of this urb to URB_NO_TRANSFER_DMA_MAP, otherwise when
we submit this urb, the hcd core will handle this address as an
non-DMA address and call dma_map_single/sg to map it. On arm
architecture, dma_map_single a DMA coherent address will be catched
by a BUG_ON().
