Subject[ 036/109] rtlwifi: rtl8192cu: Change buffer allocation for synchronous reads
Date
From: Greg KH <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>

3.4-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Larry Finger <Larry.Finger@lwfinger.net>

commit 3ce4d85b76010525adedcc2555fa164bf706a2f3 upstream.

In commit a7959c1, the USB part of rtlwifi was switched to convert
_usb_read_sync() to using a preallocated buffer rather than one
that has been acquired using kmalloc. Although this routine is named
as though it were synchronous, there seem to be simultaneous users,
and the selection of the index to the data buffer is not multi-user
safe. This situation is addressed by adding a new spinlock. The routine
cannot sleep, thus a mutex is not allowed.
