Subject: [PATCH 2/4] drivers/net/wireless: adjust NULL test

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

Clearly bss cannot be NULL at the point of the test.  The just allocated
bss->bss is more appropriate to test at this point.

A simplified version of the semantic match that finds this problem is as
follows: (http://www.emn.fr/x-info/coccinelle/)

// <smpl>
@r@
expression x,E,E1;
identifier f,l;
position p1,p2;
@@

*x@p1->f = E1;
... when != x = E
    when != goto l;
(
*x@p2 == NULL
|
*x@p2 != NULL
)
// </smpl>

Signed-off-by: Julia Lawall <julia@...u.dk>
