Subject: [PATCH][next] RDMA/mlx5: check for error return in flow_rule rather than err

From: Colin Ian King <>

Currently when the call to create_flow_rule_vport_sq fails, the error
check is being performed on err rather than on the return pointer
flow_rule.  The return flow_rule maybe NULL (which is not considered
an error) or an error code, so check for the error on flow_rule.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Uninitialized scalar variable")
Fixes: d5ed8ac34cef ("RDMA/mlx5: Move default representors SQ steering to rule to modify QP")
