Subject[PATCH] 2.4.16 Fix NULL pointer dereferencing in agpgart_be.c
From
Date
This patch is against 2.4.16.  I couldn't find maintainer in
MAINTAINERS file so I'm simply sending this to Linus and
linux-kernel list.

In apggart_be.c, if the chip is i830M and the secondary device is not
found, linux kernel tries to dereference NULL pointer. It checks NULL
and returns from the function in the next statement but it's too late.

The attached patch add NULL check before dereferencing the
pointer to fix the problem.

The error log is:

Linux agpgart interface v0.99 (c) Jeff Hartmann
agpgart: Maximum main memory to use for agp memory: 564M
Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000020
