This is a note to let you know that I've just added the patch titled

    USB: serial: io_edgeport: fix slab-out-of-bounds read in

Subject: USB: serial: io_edgeport: fix slab-out-of-bounds read in

Fix slab-out-of-bounds read in the interrupt-URB completion handler.

The boundary condition should be (length - 1) as we access
data[position + 1].
