Subject: [PATCH 3.16 03/26] ASoC: core: fix possible ZERO_SIZE_PTR pointer dereferencing error.

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


From: Xiubo Li <>

commit 6596aa047b624aeec2ea321962cfdecf9953a383 upstream.

Since we cannot make sure the 'params->num_regs' will always be none
zero here, and then if it equals to zero, the kmemdup() will return
ZERO_SIZE_PTR, which equals to ((void *)16).

So this patch fix this with just doing the zero check before calling
