Subject[PATCH] usb: core: safely deal with the dynamic quirk lists
Date
Applying dynamic usbcore quirks in early booting when the slab is
not yet ready would cause kernel panic of null pointer dereference
because the quirk_count has been counted as 1 while the quirk_list
was failed to allocate.

i.e.,

To tackle this odd, let's balance the quirk_count to 0 when the kcalloc
call fails, and defer the quirk setting into a lower level callback
which ensures that the kernel memory management has been initialized.

Fixes: 027bd6cafd9a ("usb: core: Add "quirks" parameter for usbcore")
