Subject[ 085/108] usbnet: fix deadlock in resume
From: Greg KH <>

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


From: Oliver Neukum <>

commit ab6f148de28261682d300662e87b9477f7efc95b upstream.

A usbnet device can share a multifunction device
with a storage device. If the storage device is autoresumed
the usbnet devices also needs to be autoresumed. Allocating
memory with GFP_KERNEL can deadlock in this case.

This should go back into all kernels that have
commit 65841fd5132c3941cdf5df09e70df3ed28323212
That is 3.5
