Subject[PATCH 3.18 133/145] usb: hub: Fix crash after failure to read BOS descriptor
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Guenter Roeck <>

commit 7b2db29fbb4e766fcd02207eb2e2087170bd6ebc upstream.

If usb_get_bos_descriptor() returns an error, usb->bos will be NULL.
Nevertheless, it is dereferenced unconditionally in
hub_set_initial_usb2_lpm_policy() if usb2_hw_lpm_capable is set.
This results in a crash.

Since we don't know anything about LPM capabilities without BOS descriptor,
don't attempt to enable LPM if it is not available.
