Subject: Re: [PATCH] isdn: hisax: l3dss1.c: Fix for possible null pointer dereference

Hi  Sergei

I did not put the assignment in the if statement. Is it meant for me
to change all the code around the parts I fix?
There are many assignments in if in the l3dss1_cmd_global() funktion.


It's late and I'm tired, but I still can not see which of these pairs
of features that I can remove ...?

            if (ic->parm.dss1_io.timeout > 0) {
                if (!(pc = dss1_new_l3_process(st, -1))) {
                    free_invoke_id(st, id);
                    return (-2);
                }
                pc->prot.dss1.ll_id = ic->parm.dss1_io.ll_id; /* remember id */
                pc->prot.dss1.proc = ic->parm.dss1_io.proc; /* and procedure */
            }


Best regards
Rickard Strandqvist
