    Subject[patch 013/164] staging: vt6655: Fix kernel BUG on driver wpa initialization
    2.6.33-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


    From: Larry Finger <>

    commit f65515275ea3e45fdcd0fb78455f542d6fdca086 upstream.

    In, the vt6655 driver
    generates a kernel BUG on a NULL pointer dereference at NULL. This problem
    has been traced to a failure in the wpa_set_wpadev() routine. As the vt6656
    driver does not call this routine, the vt6655 code is similarly set to skip
    the call.
