Subject[PATCH 3.12 140/181] media: stk1160: Avoid stack-allocated buffer for control URBs
Date
From: Ezequiel Garcia <ezequiel.garcia@free-electrons.com>

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

===============

commit 85ac1a1772bb41da895bad83a81f6a62c8f293f6 upstream.

Currently stk1160_read_reg() uses a stack-allocated char to get the
read control value. This is wrong because usb_control_msg() requires
a kmalloc-ed buffer.

This commit fixes such issue by kmalloc'ating a 1-byte buffer to receive
the read value.

While here, let's remove the urb_buf array which was meant for a similar
purpose, but never really used.
