Subject: [30/43] mmc: sdhci: Check mrq->cmd in sdhci_tasklet_finish

2.6.33-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Ben Dooks <>

commit b7b4d3426d2b5ecab21578eb20d8e456a1aace8f upstream.

It seems that under certain circumstances that the sdhci_tasklet_finish()
call can be entered with mrq->cmd set to NULL, causing the system to crash
with a NULL pointer de-reference.

Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000000
PC is at sdhci_tasklet_finish+0x34/0xe8
LR is at sdhci_tasklet_finish+0x24/0xe8

Seen on S3C6410 system.
