2.6.33-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Roel Kluin <roel.kluin(a)>

commit e4a3d94658b5760fc947d7f7185c57db47ca362a upstream.

While looping over the interfaces, if usb_hcd_alloc_bandwidth() fails it calls
hcd->driver->reset_bandwidth(), so there was no need to reinstate the interface

If no break occurred, the index equals config->desc.bNumInterfaces. A
subsequent usb_control_msg() failure resulted in a read from
config->interface[config->desc.bNumInterfaces] at label reset_old_alts.

In either case the last interface should be skipped.
