Subject[PATCH 4.15 041/146] MIPS: ath25: Check for kzalloc allocation failure
Date
4.15-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

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

commit 1b22b4b28fd5fbc51855219e3238b3ab81da8466 upstream.

Currently there is no null check on a failed allocation of board_data,
and hence a null pointer dereference will occurr. Fix this by checking
for the out of memory null pointer.
