Kernel Bug Tracker – Bug 5537
cdc-acm oopses when device is unplugged
Last modified: 2005-12-30 05:11:41 UTC
The cdc_acm module oopses if I disconnect my Nokia phones USB cable while I have
an active connection open. More or less the same as bug 4407, however that
bugreport has been marked as fixed, and the patches are in the 2.6.14 release.
But the driver seem to still exhibit a similar bug.

<1>Fixing recursive fault but reboot is needed!
After recompiling with CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO and CONFIG_FRAME_POINTER i was unable
to reproduce the above crash, another crash however occured when rmmod cdc_acm
a friend pointed me a possible fix which seemed to fix my problems.
Created attachment 6483 [details]
Fixes oops when removing cdc_acm module
(Note: patch from firstname.lastname@example.org)
I do not see how that patch fixes anything, as it does the same thing
the original code does.
What are you doing with this active connection? Are you running ppp or some other
line dicipline over it?
Try as I might, I just can't reproduce the crash. I'm slowly starting to believe
that the problem never occured and I dreamt it all. I've tried numerous ways of
reproducing the error (the error did occur on every reboot on that machine when
I reported the issue (and did so aswell on the laptop)) but I give up. I'll give
it one more go without the extra debugging enabled and see if I start getting
crashes again. But I doubt I'll get anything useful out of it.
Please reopen this bug if you are able to reproduce it.
