HID: hidraw, fix a NULL pointer dereference in hidraw_ioctl
Antonio Ospite [Tue, 5 Oct 2010 15:20:16 +0000 (17:20 +0200)]
BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000028
IP: [<ffffffffa02c66b4>] hidraw_ioctl+0xfc/0x32c [hid]
[...]

This is reproducible by disconnecting the device while userspace does
ioctl in a loop and doesn't check return values in order to exit the
loop.
