Subject: CVE-2021-47141: gve: Add NULL pointer checks when freeing irqs.

Description
===========

In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved:

gve: Add NULL pointer checks when freeing irqs.

When freeing notification blocks, we index priv->msix_vectors.
If we failed to allocate priv->msix_vectors (see abort_with_msix_vectors)
this could lead to a NULL pointer dereference if the driver is unloaded.

The Linux kernel CVE team has assigned CVE-2021-47141 to this issue.

===========================

	Issue introduced in 5.3 with commit 893ce44df565 and fixed in 5.4.124 with commit 821149ee88c2

Mitigation
==========

The Linux kernel CVE team recommends that you update to the latest
stable kernel version for this, and many other bugfixes.  Individual
changes are never tested alone, but rather are part of a larger kernel
release.  Cherry-picking individual commits is not recommended or
supported by the Linux kernel community at all.  If however, updating to
the latest release is impossible, the individual changes to resolve this
issue can be found at these commits:
