I believe your SOB is needed here after Hemant's per section 11 of
Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst

How does this work?

I understand the need for the range check, however I looks like this
change doesn't do proper handling.

Since all you do is "continue", we'll remain stuck in the while loop
this exists in, continuously "processing" the same event, failing the
same check, and spamming the kernel log with the WARN_ON output until
the end of time.

What am I missing?

What is the behavior you want? Do you want to just drop/ignore the
invalid event, or issue a reset of the device because it is clearly
misbehaving?
