Subject: [PATCH 4/6] drivers/net/fs_enet: remove null pointer dereference

From: Julia Lawall <julia@...u.dk>

The following code appears in the function fs_init_instance in the file drivers/net/fs_enet/fs_enet-main.c.

	if (fep->ops == NULL) {
		printk(KERN_ERR DRV_MODULE_NAME
		       ": %s No matching ops found (%d).\n",
		       ndev->name, fpi->fs_no);
		err = -EINVAL;
		goto err;
	}

This code implies that at the point of err, fep->ops can be NULL, so an
extra test is needed before dereferencing this value.


This problem was found using the following semantic match
(http://www.emn.fr/x-info/coccinelle/)

// <smpl>
@@
expression E, E1;
identifier f;
statement S1,S2,S3;
@@

* if (E == NULL)
{
  ... when != if (E == NULL) S1 else S2
      when != E = E1
* E->f
  ... when any
  return ...;
}
else S3
// </smpl>
