Subject[PATCH 5.2 34/61] p54: fix crash during initialization
Date
From: Christian Lamparter <chunkeey@gmail.com>

commit 1645ab931998b39aed5761f095956f0b10a6362f upstream.

This patch fixes a crash that got introduced when the
mentioned patch replaced the direct list_head access
with skb_peek_tail(). When the device is starting up,
there are no entries in the queue, so previously to
"Use skb_peek_tail() instead..." the target_skb would
end up as the tail and head pointer which then could
be used by __skb_queue_after to fill the empty queue.

With skb_peek_tail() in its place will instead just
return NULL which then causes a crash in the
__skb_queue_after().
