Subject[PATCH 1/1] USB: serial/usb_wwan, fix tty NULL dereference
Date
tty_port_tty_get may return without any problems NULL. Handle this
case and do not oops in usb_wwan_indat_callback by dereferencing it.

The oops:
Unable to handle kernel paging request for data at address 0x000000d8
Faulting instruction address: 0xc0175b3c
Oops: Kernel access of bad area, sig: 11 [#1]
PowerPC 40x Platform
last sysfs file:
