Subject: [PATCH] rfkill: Fix incorrect check to avoid NULL pointer dereference
Date: Sun, 15 Dec 2019 09:34:08 -0600
Message-ID: <20191215153409.21696-1-pakki001@umn.edu> (raw)

In rfkill_register, the struct rfkill pointer is first derefernced
and then checked for NULL. This patch removes the BUG_ON and returns
an error to the caller in case rfkill is NULL.
