Hi Dan,

Thank you for the patch.

I won't repeat the arguments already made in the thread regarding having
documented coverity rules for this, even if I agree with them.

(adding a bit more context)

So pin is used to search for an entry in the chain->entities list. Entries in
that list are allocated separately through kmalloc and can thus end up in
different cache lines, so I agree we have an issue. However, this is mitigated
by the fact that typical UVC devices have a handful (sometimes up to a dozen)
entities, so an attacker would only be able to read memory values that are
equal to the entity IDs used by the device. Entity IDs can be freely allocated
but typically count continuously from 0. It would take a specially-crafted UVC
device to be able to read all memory.

On the other hand, as this is nowhere close to being a fast path, I think we
can close this potential hole as proposed in the patch. So,

Will you merge the whole series in one go, or would you like me to take the
patch in my tree ? In the latter case I'll wait until the nospec_array_ptr()
gets merged in mainline.
