Subject[PATCH 4.18 31/44] USB: serial: option: improve Quectel EP06 detection
4.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Kristian Evensen <>

commit 36cae568404a298a19a6e8a3f18641075d4cab04 upstream.

The Quectel EP06 (and EM06/EG06) LTE modem supports updating the USB
configuration, without the VID/PID or configuration number changing.
When the configuration is updated and interfaces are added/removed, the
interface numbers are updated. This causes our current code for matching
EP06 not to work as intended, as the assumption about reserved
interfaces no longer holds. If for example the diagnostic (first)
interface is removed, option will (try to) bind to the QMI interface.

This patch improves EP06 detection by replacing the current match with
two matches, and those matches check class, subclass and protocol as
well as VID and PID. The diag interface exports class, subclass and
protocol as 0xff. For the other serial interfaces, class is 0xff and
subclass and protocol are both 0x0.

The modem can export the following devices and always in this order:
diag, nmea, at, ppp. qmi and adb. This means that diag can only ever be
interface 0, and interface numbers 1-5 should be marked as reserved. The
three other serial devices can have interface numbers 0-3, but I have
not marked any interfaces as reserved. The reason is that the serial
devices are the only interfaces exported by the device where subclass
and protocol is 0x0.

QMI exports the same class, subclass and protocol values as the diag
interface. However, the two interfaces have different number of
endpoints, QMI has three and diag two. I have added a check for number
of interfaces if VID/PID matches the EP06, and we ignore the device if
number of interfaces equals three (and subclass is set).
