Subject: [PATCH 3.13 107/259] Bluetooth: Ignore H5 non-link packets in non-active state -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Loic Poulain <>

commit 48439d501e3d9e8634bdc0c418e066870039599d upstream.

When detecting a non-link packet, h5_reset_rx() frees the Rx skb.
Not returning after that will cause the upcoming h5_rx_payload()
call to dereference a now NULL Rx skb and trigger a kernel oops.
