Subject: [PATCH 3.14 100/114] CIFS: Possible null ptr deref in SMB2_tcon

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


From: Steve French <>

commit 18f39e7be0121317550d03e267e3ebd4dbfbb3ce upstream.

As Raphael Geissert pointed out, tcon_error_exit can dereference tcon
and there is one path in which tcon can be null.
