drivers/net/ethernet/ti/davinci_cpdma.c: Remove potential NULL dereference
If the NULL test is necessary, the initialization involving a dereference of the tested value should be moved after the NULL test. The sematic patch that fixes this problem is as follows: (http://coccinelle.lip6.fr/) // <smpl> @@ type T; expression E; identifier i,fld; statement S; @@ - T i = E->fld; + T i; ... when != E when != i if (E == NULL) S + i = E->fld; // </smpl> Signed-off-by: Julia Lawall <Julia.Lawall@lip6.fr> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
