Subject: [PATCH 3.12 097/181] net: cpsw: fix null dereference at probe

From: Johan Hovold <>

3.12-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


commit 6954cc1f238199e971ec905c5cc87120806ac981 upstream.

Fix null-pointer dereference at probe when the mdio platform device is
missing (e.g. when it has been disabled in DT).
