Subject[PATCH 4.9 099/148] bnx2x: prevent crash when accessing PTP with interface down
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Michal Schmidt <mschmidt@redhat.com>


[ Upstream commit 466e8bf10ac104d96e1ea813e8126e11cb72ea20 ]

It is possible to crash the kernel by accessing a PTP device while its
associated bnx2x interface is down. Before the interface is brought up,
the timecounter is not initialized, so accessing it results in NULL
dereference.

Fix it by checking if the interface is up.

Use -ENETDOWN as the error code when the interface is down.
-EFAULT in bnx2x_ptp_adjfreq() did not seem right.

Tested using phc_ctl get/set/adj/freq commands.
