Subject[PATCH 3.12 041/181] xfs: fix possible NULL dereference in xlog_verify_iclog
Date
From: "Geyslan G. Bem" <geyslan@gmail.com>

3.12-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

===============

commit 643f7c4e5656bd18c769211f933190f7bb738245 upstream.

In xlog_verify_iclog a debug check of the incore log buffers prints an
error if icptr is null and then goes on to dereference the pointer
regardless. Convert this to an assert so that the intention is clear.
This was reported by Coverty.
