SubjectRe: [PATCH] OMAP: Dereference of NULL autodep in _autodep_lookup()

My first patch was wrong, but there's something I think could
be wrong. In clkdm_init() we have:

for (autodep = autodeps; autodep->pwrdm.ptr; autodep++)

In _autodep_lookup() we ensure that we don't dereference
autodep by:

if (!autodep)
but if autodep can be NULL we already dereferenced it in
the aforementioned for loop, so shouldn't that be:

for (autodep = autodeps; autodep && autodep->pwrdm.ptr; autodep++)

Then since this is the only call to _autodep_lookup() we can remove
that test there. Do you agree?

Your suggested patch looks right to me as well.
