Subject: [PATCH] brcmfmac: check ndev pointer
Date: Sun,  2 Aug 2020 09:18:04 -0700
Message-ID: <20200802161804.6126-1-trix@redhat.com> (raw)

From: Tom Rix <trix@redhat.com>

Clang static analysis reports this error

brcmfmac/core.c:490:4: warning: Dereference of null pointer
        (*ifp)->ndev->stats.rx_errors++;
        ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In this block of code

	if (ret || !(*ifp) || !(*ifp)->ndev) {
		if (ret != -ENODATA && *ifp)
			(*ifp)->ndev->stats.rx_errors++;
		brcmu_pkt_buf_free_skb(skb);
		return -ENODATA;
	}

(*ifp)->ndev being NULL is caught as an error
But then it is used to report the error.

So add a check before using it.

Fixes: 91b632803ee4 ("brcmfmac: Use net_device_stats from struct net_device")
