OK, thanks for the hint. So I think the simplest solution would be to
check
that x25->neighbour is != NULL like this:

diff --git a/net/x25/af_x25.c b/net/x25/af_x25.c
index 0bbb283f23c9..046d3fee66a9 100644
--- a/net/x25/af_x25.c
+++ b/net/x25/af_x25.c
@@ -825,7 +825,7 @@ static int x25_connect(struct socket *sock, struct
sockaddr *uaddr,
sock->state = SS_CONNECTED;
rc = 0;
out_put_neigh:
- if (rc) {
+ if (rc && x25->neighbour) {
read_lock_bh(&x25_list_lock);
x25_neigh_put(x25->neighbour);
x25->neighbour = NULL;
--
What do you think?
If that would be OK, I'll send a v2 of the Patch.

- Martin
