Subject[PATCH 4.14 25/75] staging: rtl8188eu: avoid a null dereference on pmlmepriv
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@canonical.com>


[ Upstream commit 123c0aab0050cd0e07ce18e453389fbbb0a5a425 ]

There is a check on pmlmepriv before dereferencing it when
vfree'ing pmlmepriv->free_bss_buf however the previous call
to rtw_free_mlme_priv_ie_data deferences pmlmepriv causing
a null pointer deference if it is null. Avoid this by also
calling rtw_free_mlme_priv_ie_data if the pointer is non-null.

Detected by CoverityScan, CID#1230262 ("Dereference before null check")
Fixes: 7b464c9fa5cc ("staging: r8188eu: Add files for new driver - part 4")
