SubjectRE: [PATCH] USB: g_serial: Allow to override the default VID/PID
Date
From
Hi,

I just revisited the patch I submitted and I can see that it needs
fixing. The intention of the patch was to provide the idVendor &
idProduct kernel module parameter overrides to the individual
functions at 'bind()' time. Prior to the patch, the overrides were
done after the bind, making it hard for individual functions to
determine the correct value for idVendor (some functions may need
to use that value, e.g. USB audio when it registers itself
as an ALSA device; it would want to use the same Vendor id).
The patch makes sure that that happens, however, right after the bind()
the patched values are lost due to the copying of the gadget specific
device descriptor. Here's the snippet from 2.6.34:

999 usb_gadget_set_selfpowered(gadget);
1000

1001 /* interface and string IDs start at zero via kzalloc.
1002 * we force endpoints to start unassigned; few controller
1003 * drivers will zero ep->driver_data.
1004 */
1005 usb_ep_autoconfig_reset(cdev->gadget);
1006
1007 /* composite gadget needs to assign strings for whole device (like
1008 * serial number), register function drivers, potentially update
1009 * power state and consumption, etc
1010 */
1011 status = composite->bind(cdev);
1012 if (status < 0)
1013 goto fail;
1014
1015 cdev->desc = *composite->dev;
1016 cdev->desc.bMaxPacketSize0 = gadget->ep0->maxpacket;
1017
1018 /* standardized runtime overrides for device ID data */
1019 if (idVendor)
1020 cdev->desc.idVendor = cpu_to_le16(idVendor);
1021 if (idProduct)
1022 cdev->desc.idProduct = cpu_to_le16(idProduct);
1023 if (bcdDevice)
1024 cdev->desc.bcdDevice = cpu_to_le16(bcdDevice);
1025
In line 1015, the composite device descriptor is copied to the cdev->desc
field. Then the values get patched.

My patch just moved lines 1018-1024, so that the functions could access
the patched values. The ill side effect is that these patched values
are lost when the *composite->dev (== device descriptor) is copied
in line 1015.

It would seem that the patch should also have moved lines 1015-1016 in front
of the composite->bind(cdev) call.

It would require all composite gadgets (such as serial.c) and all functions
(such as f_acm.c) to do any modifications to the device descriptor as passed
to them in the 'bind' call. For functions that is natural, as they should be
unaware of the gadget that uses them.

The composite gadgets such as 'serial' seem to deal with it differently.
The serial.c gadget refers to the device descriptor as 'device_desc', and it
is a static struct. It references it in its 'init' function (which is ok, it is
prior to the registration point) and in the gs_bind() call. At that point it should
probably not be using 'device_desc', but cdev->desc.

I think we can go one of two ways. I'd be happy to go over the composite gadgets and
change their use of their device descriptors, such that they use cdev->desc at
bind() time. Combining that with the moving the copying of the *composite->dev
to before calling 'composite->bind()' would make things consistent.

The other way is reverting my original patch. For those functions that need access
to the overridden idVendor/idProduct code, we'll need to work out another
(generic) solution.
