Date: Fri, 8 Nov 2019 08:19:55 +0300
Message-ID: <20191108051954.GA27432@mwanda> (raw)

Hello Steve French,

This is a semi-automatic email about new static checker warnings.

The patch 6a364520b30e: "smb3: remove confusing dmesg when mounting
with encryption ("seal")" from Nov 5, 2019, leads to the following
Smatch complaint:

    fs/cifs/connect.c:1091 cifs_handle_standard()
    warn: variable dereferenced before check 'mid' (see line 1075)

  1074		length = server->ops->check_message(buf, server->total_read, server,
  1075						    mid->decrypted);
New unchecked dereference.

  1076		if (length != 0)
  1077			cifs_dump_mem("Bad SMB: ", buf,
  1078				min_t(unsigned int, server->total_read, 48));
  1080		if (server->ops->is_session_expired &&
  1081		    server->ops->is_session_expired(buf)) {
  1082			cifs_reconnect(server);
  1083			wake_up(&server->response_q);
  1084			return -1;
  1085		}
  1087		if (server->ops->is_status_pending &&
  1088		    server->ops->is_status_pending(buf, server))
  1089			return -1;
  1091		if (!mid)
The old code assumed it could be NULL.

  1092			return length;
