Subject[PATCH 5.4 66/98] ibmvnic: fix NULL pointer dereference in ibmvic_reset_crq
From: Lijun Pan <>

[ Upstream commit 0e435befaea45f7ea58682eecab5e37e05b2ce65 ]

crq->msgs could be NULL if the previous reset did not complete after
freeing crq->msgs. Check for NULL before dereferencing them.

Snippet of call trace:
