Subject[PATCH 3.11 059/128] USB: ftdi_sio: fix null deref at port probe
Date -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Johan Hovold <>

commit aea1ae8760314e072bf1b773521e9de5d5dda10d upstream.

Fix NULL-pointer dereference when probing an interface with no

These devices have two bulk endpoints per interface, but this avoids
crashing the kernel if a user forces a non-FTDI device to be probed.

Note that the iterator variable was made unsigned in order to avoid
a maybe-uninitialized compiler warning for ep_desc after the loop.

Fixes: 895f28badce9 ("USB: ftdi_sio: fix hi-speed device packet size
