to_vep() is doing a container_of() on _ep. It is better to do the NULL
check first and then use it.

Hmm. Linus's latest checks _ep and _req. Are you sure you are working
with the latest tree?

This is for  vep_dequeue() - Are you sure both linux-next and Linus's tree show
the following:

http://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/tree/drivers/usb/usbip/vudc_dev.c

static int vep_dequeue(struct usb_ep *_ep, struct usb_request *_req)
{
struct vep *ep;
struct vrequest *req;
struct vudc *udc;
struct vrequest *lst;
unsigned long flags;
int ret = -EINVAL;

if (!_ep || !_req)
return ret;

ep = to_vep(_ep);
req = to_vrequest(_req);
udc = req->udc;

if (!udc->driver)
return -ESHUTDOWN;

There are other routines in this file that don't check null. I am confused.

thanks,

generally this file contains implementation of gadget/endpoint
callbacks. Those methods will be called by udc-core with values passed
from USB gadget (usually directly from function).

I check other udc in kernel and there is no agreement if we should check
in those callbacks if our params are NULL or not.

I have also run through udc-core implementation and generally it doesn't
check if params are NULL or not and just dereference some of them and
pass them to our callbacks.

I think that the best option is just to ask Felipe (USB gadget
maintainer) if we should check this or not.


@Felipe
Should each UDC check if values passed to gadget/endpoint callbacks is
not NULL or just simply dereference them?

This is for vep_set_halt_and_wedge(). I do not have any idea why the
patch says its vep_dequeue(). I tried generating the patch again and
it still shows as vep_dequeue(). But the line number 388 is correct and
if you try to apply, it applies correctly.
