Subject[PATCH 4.19 41/57] ibmvnic: fix NULL pointer dereference in reset_sub_crq_queues
From: Lijun Pan <>

[ Upstream commit a0faaa27c71608799e0dd765c5af38a089091802 ]

adapter->tx_scrq and adapter->rx_scrq could be NULL if the previous reset
did not complete after freeing sub crqs. Check for NULL before
dereferencing them.

Snippet of call trace:
