[PATCH 03/18] backport: check for failure when allocating ops in genetlink

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


From: Luca Coelho <luciano.coelho@xxxxxxxxx>

We were not checking if the allocation failed in
backport_genl_register_family(), which could lead to NULL pointer
dereferences later.  Fix that.
