Subject: [PATCH] net: can: add missing urb->transfer_dma initialization
Date: Sun, 25 Jul 2021 13:36:30 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

Yasushi reported, that his Microchip CAN Analyzer stopped working since
commit 91c02557174b ("can: mcba_usb: fix memory leak in mcba_usb").
The problem was in missing urb->transfer_dma initialization.

In my previous patch to this driver I refactored mcba_usb_start() code to
avoid leaking usb coherent buffers. To achive it, I passed local stack
variable to usb_alloc_coherent() and then saved it to private array to
correctly free all coherent buffers on ->close() call. But I forgot to
inialize urb->transfer_dma with variable passed to usb_alloc_coherent().

All of this was causing device to not work, since dma addr 0 is not valid
and following log can be found on bug report page, which points exactly to
problem described above.

[   33.862175] DMAR: [DMA Write] Request device [00:14.0] PASID ffffffff fault addr 0 [fault reason 05] PTE Write access is not set
