Mon Sep 30 10:09:48 UTC 2013 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Hans de Goede <hdegoede at redhat.com>

commit b4f17a488ae2e09bfcf95c0e0b4219c246f1116a upstream.

While reading the config parsing code I noticed this check is missing, without
this check config->desc.wTotalLength can end up with a value larger then the
dev->rawdescriptors length for the config, and when userspace then tries to
get the rawdescriptors bad things may happen.
