bridge br_multicast: BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference
On Tue, Jul 06, 2010 at 08:48:35AM +0800, Herbert Xu wrote: > > bridge: Restore NULL check in br_mdb_ip_get Resend with proper attribution. bridge: Restore NULL check in br_mdb_ip_get Somewhere along the line the NULL check in br_mdb_ip_get went AWOL, causing crashes when we receive an IGMP packet with no multicast table allocated. This patch restores it and ensures all br_mdb_*_get functions use it.
