Subject[PATCH 4.14 414/496] ipmi_ssif: Fix kernel panic at msg_done_handler
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Kamlakant Patel <kamlakant.patel@cavium.com>

[ Upstream commit f002612b9d86613bc6fde0a444e0095225f6053e ]

This happens when BMC doesn't return any data and the code is trying
to print the value of data[2].

Getting following crash:
[ 484.728410] Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000002
[ 484.736496] pgd = ffff0000094a2000

Adding a check to validate the data len before printing data[2] to fix this issue.
