No, they don't. The config and rawdescriptors buffers get freed later
on in usb_destroy_configuration().

This problem is something else. Probably whatever driver is calling
gspca_probe() (see the console log) is taking a reference to the
usb_device or usb_interface and then failing to release that reference
on its error path.

The console log shows that this is connected to gspca_dev_probe. Let's
see who's calling it...

Hi Alan,
The execution path is more complicated. I've done some debugging, but no
luck with root case... Just want to share what I found and maybe it will
help.

Firsly syzbot connects carl9170 device (usb ids from the log).
carl9170_usb_probe() calls usb_reset_device() which fails with -19. If I
remove this usb_reset_device() call then issue is no more reproducible.

Then 2 other probes are called: usbtest and spca501. spca501 calls
gspca_dev_probe(), but it fails early and I do not suspect this driver.
usbtest probe function also looks correct, so I do not suspect this
driver as well.

Looks like the issue either in usb_reset_device() call or somewhere in
usb internals




With regards,
Pavel Skripkin

Okay, thanks for the information.

Is there any reason for carl9170_usb_probe to do a reset? I can't
imagine why that would be needed. Maybe the simplest solution is just
to remove the reset.

Unfortunately, that won't tell us where the extra reference is coming
from. Here's one thing you could do if you want to continue your
debugging: At the start of the probe routines for carl9170, usbtest, and
spca501, add code to print in the kernel log the reference count value
for the usb_device and usb_interface. Maybe you'll be able to see where
the refcount goes up.

Hi Alan,
Can't say. The code was added 12 years ago

Unfortunately refcount for dev and inf stays the same at the beginning
of each probe function:

6 for dev
3 for inf

Can you find out how those numbers compare with the values for actual
working USB devices?

Also, can you see what the device's refcount is just before the
device_add() call in usb_new_device() and just before the put_device()
call at the end of usb_disconnect() (both in drivers/usb/core/hub.c)?

If they all are consistent with each then my guess that something is
failing to drop a reference is probably wrong.
