xHCI: handle command after aborting the command ring
According to xHCI spec section 188.8.131.52 and section 184.108.40.206,
after aborting a command on the command ring, xHC will
generate a command completion event with its completion
code set to Command Ring Stopped at least. If a command is
currently executing at the time of aborting a command, xHC
also generate a command completion event with its completion
code set to Command Abort. When the command ring is stopped,
software may remove, add, or rearrage Command Descriptors.
To cancel a command, software will initialize a command
descriptor for the cancel command, and add it into a
cancel_cmd_list of xhci. When the command ring is stopped,
software will find the command trbs described by command
descriptors in cancel_cmd_list and modify it to No Op
command. If software can't find the matched trbs, we can
think it had been finished.
This patch should be backported to kernels as old as 3.0, that contain
the commit 7ed603ecf8b68ab81f4c83097d3063d43ec73bb8 "xhci: Add an
assertion to check for virt_dev=0 bug." That commit papers over a NULL
pointer dereference, and this patch fixes the underlying issue that
caused the NULL pointer dereference.
