Quite - there is a race there. It protects the flag though ;-)

I thought I had pulled the lock out to only check the flag, to prevent
surrounding the usb_submit_urb(), but now I look again - I see no reason not to
lock for the whole critical section.

I've tested locally on my laptop, and it seems safe to hold the lock during the
usb_submit_urb() (unless anyone sees something I'm missing), so I'll update this
for the next spin to something more like:

spin_lock_irq(&queue->irqlock);
if (!(queue->flags & UVC_QUEUE_STOPPING)) {
ret = usb_submit_urb(uvc_urb->urb, GFP_ATOMIC);
if (ret < 0)
uvc_printk(KERN_ERR,
"Failed to resubmit video URB (%d).\n",
ret);
}
spin_unlock_irq(&queue->irqlock);
