Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.9 10/98] i2c: bcm2835: Avoid possible NULL ptr dereference
Date
From: Stefan Wahren <stefan.wahren@i2se.com>

[ Upstream commit ababb08938df7ac245d30a58b95b94ecf8dc04fc ]

Since commit e2474541032d ("bcm2835: Fix hang for writing messages
larger than 16 bytes") the interrupt handler is prone to a possible
NULL pointer dereference. This could happen if an interrupt fires
before curr_msg is set by bcm2835_i2c_xfer_msg() and randomly occurs
on the RPi 3. Even this is an unexpected behavior the driver must
handle that with an error instead of a crash.
