Subject: [BACKPORT 4.4.y 16/25] usb: gadget: Add the gserial port checking in gs_start_tx()

From: Baolin Wang <>

When usb gadget is set gadget serial function, it will be crash in below

It will clean the 'port->port_usb' pointer in gserial_disconnect() function
when usb link is inactive, but it will release lock for disabling the endpoints
in this function. Druing the lock release period, it maybe complete one request
to issue gs_write_complete()--->gs_start_tx() function, but the 'port->port_usb'
pointer had been set NULL, thus it will be crash in gs_start_tx() function.

This patch adds the 'port->port_usb' pointer checking in gs_start_tx() function
to avoid this situation.
