Subject: [PATCH 3.13 136/187] USB: devio: fix issue with log flooding -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Oliver Neukum <>

commit d310d05f1225d1f6f2bf505255fdf593bfbb3051 upstream.

usbfs allows user space to pass down an URB which sets URB_SHORT_NOT_OK
for output URBs. That causes usbcore to log messages without limit
for a nonsensical disallowed combination. The fix is to silently drop
the attribute in usbfs.
The problem is reported to exist since 3.14
