Subject: [PATCH] rtw88: don't treat NULL pointer as an array
Date: Fri, 21 Aug 2020 14:17:16 -0700
Message-ID: <> (raw)

I'm not a standards expert, but this really looks to be undefined
behavior, when chip->dig_cck may be NULL. (And, we're trying to do a
NULL check a few lines down, because some chip variants will use NULL.)

Fixes: fc637a860a82 ("rtw88: 8723d: Set IG register for CCK rate")
