Subject[PATCH v3] usb: dwc3: gadget: Move null pinter check after window closed
After inspecting further, we do see the locking is implicit, with the
main gotcha being the unlock/re-lock. That creates a window for a race
to happen. This change moves the NULL check to be adjacent to where
to it's used and after the window is "closed".

Fixes: 26288448120b ("usb: dwc3: gadget: Fix null pointer exception")
Signed-off-by: Albert Wang <>
v3: Add change log to be compliant with the canonical patch format
v2: Remove redundant 'else' and add additional comments and more
descriptive commit text
