Subject[PATCH 089/104] mwifiex: fix NULL pointer dereference in usb suspend handler
Date
3.8.13.11 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Bing Zhao <bzhao@marvell.com>

commit 346ece0b7ba2730b4d633b9e371fe55488803102 upstream.

Bug 60815 - Interface hangs in mwifiex_usb
https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=60815

[ 2.883807] BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference
at 0000000000000048
[ 2.883813] IP: [<ffffffff815a65e0>] pfifo_fast_enqueue+0x90/0x90

[ 2.883834] CPU: 1 PID: 3220 Comm: kworker/u8:90 Not tainted
3.11.1-monotone-l0 #6
[ 2.883834] Hardware name: Microsoft Corporation Surface with
Windows 8 Pro/Surface with Windows 8 Pro,
BIOS 1.03.0450 03/29/2013

On Surface Pro, suspend to ram gives a NULL pointer dereference in
pfifo_fast_enqueue(). The stack trace reveals that the offending
call is clearing carrier in mwifiex_usb suspend handler.

Since commit 1499d9f "mwifiex: don't drop carrier flag over suspend"
has removed the carrier flag handling over suspend/resume in SDIO
and PCIe drivers, I'm removing it in USB driver too. This also fixes
the bug for Surface Pro.
