3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Thomas Jarosch <thomas.jaro...@intra2net.com>

[ Upstream commit 9476d393667968b4a02afbe9d35a3558482b943e ]

DMA transfers are not allowed to buffers that are on the stack.
Therefore allocate a buffer to store the result of usb_control_message().

Fixes these bugreports:


Shortened kernel backtrace from 4.11.9-200.fc25.x86_64:

Regression goes back to 4.9, so it's a good candidate for -stable.
Though it's the decision of the maintainer.

Thanks to Dan Williams for adding the "transfer buffer not dma capable"
warning in the first place. It instantly pointed me in the right direction.

Patch has been tested with transferring data from a Polar watch.
