Subject: Re: [PATCH] libertas_tf: Avoid a null pointer dereference in
 if_usb_disconnect()

> Currently there is a check if priv is null when calling lbtf_remove_card
> but not in a previous call to if_usb_reset_dev that can also dereference
> priv.  Fix this by also only calling lbtf_remove_card if priv is null.

I suggest to recheck this description (and the corresponding patch subject).

The patch code proposes to move a specific function call into an if branch
according to a null pointer check.
