Subject: [PATCH] cdc-wdm: fix race leading leading to memory corruption

This patch fixes a race whereby a pointer to a buffer
would be overwritten while the buffer was in use leading
to a double free and a memory leak. This causes crashes.
This bug was introduced in 2.6.34

This is pretty serious and should go in before the next release.
