Subject: [PATCH] kgdboc: Passing ekgdboc to command line causes panic

From: He Zhe <zhe.he@...driver.com>

kgdboc_option_setup does not check input argument before passing it
to strlen. The argument would be a NULL pointer if "ekgdboc", without
its value, is set in command line and thus cause the following panic.

PANIC: early exception 0xe3 IP 10:ffffffff8fbbb620 error 0 cr2 0x0

This patch adds a check to prevent the panic and changes some printk
to right fashion.
