[PATCH 4.14 18/31] cdc-acm: do not reset notification buffer index upon urb unlinking

4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Tobias Herzog <t-herzog@xxxxxx>

commit dae3ddba36f8c337fb59cef07d564da6fc9b7551 upstream.

Resetting the write index of the notification buffer on urb unlink (e.g.
closing a cdc-acm device from userspace) may lead to wrong interpretation
of further received notifications, in case the index is not 0 when urb
unlink happens (i.e. when parts of a notification already have been
transferred). On the device side there is no "reset" of the notification
transimission and thus we would get out of sync with the device.
