Subject: [PATCH] USB:gadget: Fix a warning while loading g_mass_storage

From: Yang Wei <>

While loading g_mass_storage module, the following warning
is triggered.

WARNING: at drivers/usb/gadget/composite.c:
usb_composite_setup_continue: Unexpected call

[<8004bc90>] (kthread+0x98/0x9c) from [<8000faec>] (kernel_thread_exit+0x0/0x8)

The root cause is that the existing code fails to take into
account the possibility that common->new_fsg can change while
do_set_interface() is running, so the value of common->new_fsg
that gets tested after do_set_interface returns needs to be
the same as the value used by do_set_interface.
