> A recent commit efa14c3985828d ("iavf: allow null RX descriptors") added a
> null pointer sanity check on rx_buffer, however, rx_buffer is being
> dereferenced before that check, which implies a null pointer dereference
> bug can potentially occur.  Fix this by only dereferencing rx_buffer until after
> the null pointer check.
