Subject: [PATCH] module param_call: fix potential NULL pointer dereference

The param_set_fn() function will get a parameter which is a NULL
pointer when insmod module with params via following method:

$insmod module.ko module_params

BTW: the normal method usually as following format:
$insmod module.ko module_params=example

If the param_set_fn() function didn't check that parameter and used
it directly, it could caused an OOPS due to NULL pointer dereference.

The solution is simple:
Just checking the parameter before using in param_set_fn().

Example:
int set_module_params(const char *val, struct kernel_param *kp)
{
	/*Checking the val parameter before using */
	if (!val)
		return -EINVAL;
	...
}
module_param_call(module_params, set_module_params, NULL, NULL, 0644);
