Subject[PATCH 5.0 096/137] mm/page_alloc.c: avoid potential NULL pointer dereference
Date
[ Upstream commit 8139ad043d632c0e9e12d760068a7a8e91659aa1 ]

ac.preferred_zoneref->zone passed to alloc_flags_nofragment() can be NULL.
'zone' pointer unconditionally derefernced in alloc_flags_nofragment().
Bail out on NULL zone to avoid potential crash. Currently we don't see
any crashes only because alloc_flags_nofragment() has another bug which
allows compiler to optimize away all accesses to 'zone'.
