Subject: [PATCH] of: Check 'of_node_reused' flag on of_match_device()
Date: Tue, 18 Jan 2022 11:34:04 -0600	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Commit 0f153a1b8193 ("usb: chipidea: Set the DT node on the child
device") caused the child device to match on the parent driver
instead of the child's driver since the child's DT node pointer matched.
The worst case result is a loop of the parent driver probing another
instance and creating yet another child device eventually exhausting the
stack. If the child driver happens to match first, then everything works

A device sharing the DT node should never do DT based driver matching,
so let's simply check of_node_reused in of_match_device() to prevent
