Hi,

this looks like a false positive to me.
The offending code is likely this:

        if (size) {
                buf = kmalloc(size, GFP_KERNEL);
                if (!buf)
                        goto out;
        }

        err = usb_control_msg(dev->udev, usb_rcvctrlpipe(dev->udev, 0),
                              cmd, reqtype, value, index, buf, size,
                              USB_CTRL_GET_TIMEOUT);

which uses 'buf' uninitialized. But it is used for input.
What is happening here?

	Regards
		Oliver
