Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.14 19/43] staging: rtlwifi: rtl8822b: fix to avoid potential NULL pointer dereference
Date
From: Aditya Pakki <pakki001@umn.edu>

[ Upstream commit d70d70aec9632679dd00dcc1b1e8b2517e2c7da0 ]

skb allocated via dev_alloc_skb can fail and return a NULL pointer.
This patch avoids such a scenario and returns, consistent with other
invocations.
