Subject: [PATCH 5.4 48/85] usb: otg-fsm: Fix hrtimer list corruption

From: Dmitry Osipenko <>

commit bf88fef0b6f1488abeca594d377991171c00e52a upstream.

The HNP work can be re-scheduled while it's still in-fly. This results in
re-initialization of the busy work, resetting the hrtimer's list node of
the work and crashing kernel with null dereference within kernel/timer
once work's timer is expired. It's very easy to trigger this problem by
re-plugging USB cable quickly. Initialize HNP work only once to fix this

 Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000126)
