Subject: [PATCH 4.20 59/92] ASoC: hdmi-codec: fix oops on re-probe

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


From: Russell King <>

commit 0ce23d6d42147a692768e6baaaa3db75c44f4235 upstream.

hdmi-codec oopses the kernel when it is unbound from a successfully
bound audio subsystem, and is then rebound:

Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 0000001c
pgd = ee3f0000
[0000001c] *pgd=3cc59831

This happens because hdmi_dai_probe() attempts to access the HDMI
codec private data, but this has not been assigned by hdmi_dai_probe()
before it calls devm_snd_soc_register_component().  Move the call to
dev_set_drvdata() before devm_snd_soc_register_component() to avoid
this oops.
