Hmm, there's more questionable stuff in this driver, and the gadget

Fundamental fact of struct device - it's a ref-counted structure and
will only be freed when the last reference is dropped. dev_unregister()
merely drops the refcount, it doesn't guarantee that it's dropped to
zero (iow, there can be other users). Only when the refcount drops
to zero is the dev.release function called. However:

usb_add_gadget_udc_release(..., release)
if (release)
gadget->dev.release = release;
gadget->dev.release = usb_udc_nop_release;
ret = device_add(&gadget->dev);

At this point, that struct device is registered, so its refcount can
be increased by other users.

void usb_del_gadget_udc(struct usb_gadget *gadget)
memset(&gadget->dev, 0x00, sizeof(gadget->dev));

That memset() is down-right wrong - the refcount on this struct device
may _not_ be zero at this point, the struct device could well be in
use by another thread. That memset will trample over the contents of
the structure potentially while someone else is using it, and
_potentially_ before the gadget->dev.release function has been called.

However, that _may_ be a good thing when you read the omap_udc code:

status = usb_add_gadget_udc_release(&pdev->dev, &udc->gadget,

During the omap_udc_remove() function:
if (udc->driver)
return -EBUSY;

udc->done = &done;

... more dereferences of udc, which is a _global_ variable ...


Now, omap_udc_release() does this:

udc = NULL;

So, when usb_del_gadget_udc() is called, if device_unregister() within
there drops the last reference count, omap_udc_release() will be called
immediately. Since udc->done hasn't been setup at that point, that
complete() will fail with a NULL pointer dereference. If that doesn't
happen, then the kfree() and following set of the global 'udc' variable
to NULL means that all future references to 'udc' after the call to
usb_del_gadget_udc() in omap_udc_remove() will be dereferencing a NULL
pointer. So one way or the other, this leads to a kernel OOPS.

If, on the other hand, omap_udc_release() was not called in
device_unregister(), the function pointer will be zeroed by the
memset(), which will lead to 'udc' never being freed - in other words,
we leak memory.

What's more is that 'done' is never "completed" so we end up hanging
at the wait_for_completion().

Then there's the pointless:

if (udc->driver)
return -EBUSY;

in omap_udc_remove(). The effect of returning an error is... what
exactly? It doesn't prevent the device being removed at all, it
doesn't delay it, in fact the whole "remove returns an int" is
nothing but confusion - the return value from all driver remove
methods is completely ignored.

If udc->driver is still set at this point, it basically means that
we skip the rest of the tear down, but the platform device will
still be unbound from the driver, leaving (eg) the transceiver phy
still claimed, the procfs file still registered, the interrupts
still claimed, the memory region still registered, etc. If omap_udc
is built as a module, the module could even be removed while all
that is still registered.

So, whatever way I look at this, the code in the removal path both
in omap_udc and the gadget removal code higher up looks very wrong
and broken to me.
