Looking at this again, I note the code is taking the address of a struct
usb_endpoint_descriptor that's stored somewhere in memory. That address can't
be NULL, can it?

So I haven't even looked at the fuzzer's report here, but I don't see how this
patch could help. It only adds dead code. Am I missing something and should I
drink even more coffee this Saturday morning?

It's just that your patch arrived while I was busy doing my last ever test of
the gigaset driver. So please don't expect me to put much time in this report
(see

).

Thanks,
