Subjectinclude/linux/nfsd/nfsfh.h: NULL dereference
The Coverity checker spotted the following:

<-- snip -->

static __inline__ struct svc_fh *
fh_copy(struct svc_fh *dst, struct svc_fh *src)
if (src->fh_dentry || src->fh_locked) {
struct dentry *dentry = src->fh_dentry;
printk(KERN_ERR "fh_copy: copying %s/%s, already verified!\n",
dentry->d_parent->, dentry->;

*dst = *src;
return dst;

<-- snip -->

src->fh_dentry is being dereferenced when we discover it's NULL...
