AFAICS this would return a pointer to zero initialized struct devlink
when built with CONFIG_DEVLINK=n. Then devlink_compat_running_version()
would execute

	if (!dev->netdev_ops->ndo_get_devlink)
		return;

	devlink = dev->netdev_ops->ndo_get_devlink(dev);
	if (!devlink || !devlink->ops->info_get)
		return;

with non-null devlink but null devlink->ops so that it dereferences null
pointer (and so does devlink_compat_flash_update()).

Maybe it would be safer not to call ndo_get_devlink directly and have
an inline wrapper like

#if IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_NET_DEVLINK)
static inline struct devlink *dev_get_devlink(struct net_device *dev)
{
	if (dev->netdev_ops->ndo_get_devlink)
		return dev->netdev_ops->ndo_get_devlink();
	else
		retrurn NULL;
}
#else
static inline struct devlink *dev_get_devlink(struct net_device *dev)
{
	return NULL;
}
#endif

so that one can simply call the wrapper and check return value for NULL.
