Subject[PATCH 5.10 053/120] thunderbolt: Fix possible NULL pointer dereference in tb_acpi_add_link()
Date
From: Mario Limonciello <mario.limonciello@dell.com>

commit 4d395c5e74398f664405819330e5a298da37f655 upstream.

When we walk up the device hierarchy in tb_acpi_add_link() make sure we
break the loop if the device has no parent. Otherwise we may crash the
kernel by dereferencing a NULL pointer.

Fixes: b2be2b05cf3b ("thunderbolt: Create device links from ACPI description")
