Subject[PATCH] i2400m/USB: fix error return when rx_size is too large
From: Colin Ian King <>

Currently when the rx_size is too large the intended error
-EINVAL is not being returned as this is being assigned to
result rather than rx_skb. Fix this be setting rx_skb
to ERR_PTR(-EINVAL) so that the error is returned in rx_skb
as originally intended.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Unused value")
Fixes: a8ebf98f5414 ("i2400m/USB: TX and RX path backends")
