Subject[PATCH 3.16 034/157] USB: serial: mos7720: fix mos_parport refcount imbalance on error path
3.16.72-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Lin Yi <>

commit 2908b076f5198d231de62713cb2b633a3a4b95ac upstream.

The write_parport_reg_nonblock() helper takes a reference to the struct
mos_parport, but failed to release it in a couple of error paths after
allocation failures, leading to a memory leak.

Johan said that move the kref_get() and mos_parport assignment to the
end of urbtrack initialisation is a better way, so move it. and
mos_parport do not used until urbtrack initialisation.
