[PATCH 3.18 21/47] usb: r8a66597: Fix a possible concurrency use-after-free bug in r8a66597_endpoint_disable()

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


From: Jia-Ju Bai <baijiaju1990@xxxxxxxxx>

commit c85400f886e3d41e69966470879f635a2b50084c upstream.

The function r8a66597_endpoint_disable() and r8a66597_urb_enqueue() may
be concurrently executed.
The two functions both access a possible shared variable "hep->hcpriv".

This shared variable is freed by r8a66597_endpoint_disable() via the
call path:
  kfree(hep->hcpriv) (line 1995 in Linux-4.19)

This variable is read by r8a66597_urb_enqueue() via the call path:
      pipe = hep->hcpriv (line 802 in Linux-4.19)

The read operation is protected by a spinlock, but the free operation
is not protected by this spinlock, thus a concurrency use-after-free bug
may occur.

To fix this bug, the spin-lock and spin-unlock function calls in
r8a66597_endpoint_disable() are moved to protect the free operation.
