Subject: CVE request: Linux kernel: chipidea: allow disabling streaming in
 host mode

   Hello,

Linux kernel built with the ChipIdia Highspeed Dual Role Controller 
(CONFIG_USB_CHIPIDEA) along with the ChipIdea host controller 
(CONFIG_USB_CHIPIDEA_HOST) modules, is vulnerable to a kernel crash. It occurs 
while streaming content over network via USB/Ethernet adapter

A user/program could use this flaw to crash the kernel resulting in DoS.
