Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 24/68] mac80211_hwsim: Fix possible null-pointer dereferences in hwsim_dump_radio_nl()
Date
From: Jia-Ju Bai <baijiaju1990@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit b55f3b841099e641bdb2701d361a4c304e2dbd6f ]

In hwsim_dump_radio_nl(), when genlmsg_put() on line 3617 fails, hdr is
assigned to NULL. Then hdr is used on lines 3622 and 3623:
genl_dump_check_consistent(cb, hdr);
genlmsg_end(skb, hdr);

Thus, possible null-pointer dereferences may occur.

To fix these bugs, hdr is used here when it is not NULL.

This bug is found by a static analysis tool STCheck written by us.
