Subject: Re: [PATCH] net: fec: ptp: fix NULL pointer dereference if
 ptp_clock is not set

From: Philipp Zabel <>
Date: Wed, 22 Oct 2014 16:34:35 +0200

> Since commit 278d24047891 (net: fec: ptp: Enable PPS output based on ptp clock)
> fec_enet_interrupt calls fec_ptp_check_pps_event unconditionally, which calls
> into ptp_clock_event. If fep->ptp_clock is NULL, ptp_clock_event tries to
> dereference the NULL pointer.
> Since on i.MX53 fep->bufdesc_ex is not set, fec_ptp_init is never called,
> and fep->ptp_clock is NULL, which reliably causes a kernel panic.
> This patch adds a check for fep->ptp_clock == NULL in fec_enet_interrupt.
> Signed-off-by: Philipp Zabel <>
