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,
