Subject[PATCH 3.2 020/152] [media] uvcvideo: Fix destruction order in uvc_delete()
3.2.67-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Takashi Iwai <>

commit 2228d80dd05a4fc5a410fde847677b8fb3eb23d7 upstream.

We've got a bug report at disconnecting a Webcam, where the kernel
spews warnings like below:
WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 8385 at ../fs/sysfs/group.c:219 sysfs_remove_group+0x87/0x90()

The cause is that uvc_status_cleanup() is called after usb_put_*() in
uvc_delete(). usb_put_*() removes the sysfs parent and eventually
removes the children recursively, so the later device_del() can't find
its sysfs. The fix is simply rearrange the call orders in
uvc_delete() so that the child is removed before the parent.
