Subject[PATCH 3.18 19/46] ALSA: pcm: Remove incorrect snd_BUG_ON() usages
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Takashi Iwai <tiwai@suse.de>

commit fe08f34d066f4404934a509b6806db1a4f700c86 upstream.

syzkaller triggered kernel warnings through PCM OSS emulation at
closing a stream:
WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 3502 at sound/core/pcm_lib.c:1635

__fput+0x327/0x7e0 fs/file_table.c:210
....

This happens while it tries to open and set up the aloop device
concurrently. The warning above (invoked from snd_BUG_ON() macro) is
to detect the unexpected logical error where snd_pcm_hw_refine() call
shouldn't fail. The theory is true for the case where the hw_params
config rules are static. But for an aloop device, the hw_params rule
condition does vary dynamically depending on the connected target;
when another device is opened and changes the parameters, the device
connected in another side is also affected, and it caused the error
from snd_pcm_hw_refine().

That is, the simplest "solution" for this is to remove the incorrect
assumption of static rules, and treat such an error as a normal error
path. As there are a couple of other places using snd_BUG_ON()
incorrectly, this patch removes these spurious snd_BUG_ON() calls.
