Subject: [PATCH 4.9 090/102] ALSA: line6: Fix write on zero-sized buffer

From: Takashi Iwai <>

commit 3450121997ce872eb7f1248417225827ea249710 upstream.

LINE6 drivers allocate the buffers based on the value returned from
usb_maxpacket() calls.  The manipulated device may return zero for
this, and this results in the kmalloc() with zero size (and it may
succeed) while the other part of the driver code writes the packet
data with the fixed size -- which eventually overwrites.

This patch adds a simple sanity check for the invalid buffer size for
avoiding that problem.
