Subject: [PATCH] backport: check for failure when allocating ops in genetlink
Date: Tue,  2 Apr 2019 16:08:23 +0300
Message-ID: <20190402130823.13965-1-luca@coelho.fi> (raw)

From: Luca Coelho <luciano.coelho@intel.com>

We were not checking if the allocation failed in
backport_genl_register_family(), which could lead to NULL pointer
dereferences later.  Fix that.
