Subject: Re: [PATCH] conn_client: Add check for rxpc channel


Note that "conn_client:" isn't a suitable tag for the subject.  You should use
"rxrpc:" instead.

How did you find this by the way?  You shouldn't get a NULL pointer there.
Either the call is waiting for a channel to be assigned (in which case the
condition on:

	if (!list_empty(&call->chan_wait_link)) {

will be true) or it should have been assigned a channel, in which case chan
will not be NULL.

Note that the function takes the lock under which this is managed
(conn->channel_lock) across this, so it shouldn't change.

Even __rxrpc_disconnect_call(), which is called to implicitly close out a call
that gets superseded on its channel, doesn't stop
rxrpc_disconnect_client_call() from finding the channel.
