[PATCH 47/47] headers: Check for NULL in dev_put() and dev_hold()

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


Since kernel 5.15 the dev_put() and dev_hold() functions check if the
given dev is not NULL before accessing the pointer. Previously the code
to check for NULL was in the calling function. Add this check for NULL
because some checks were already removed from the driver code.
