Sir,

I need little advice in continuing with this Patch,

I have looked into the Bisected logs and the problem occurs from this commit:

941992d29447 ("ethernet: amd: use IS_ENABLED() instead of checking for built-in or module")


Here is a diff of patch which i modified from last patch,

diff --git a/net/bluetooth/hci_event.c b/net/bluetooth/hci_event.c
index 4b7fc430793c..6ce435064e0b 100644
--- a/net/bluetooth/hci_event.c
+++ b/net/bluetooth/hci_event.c
@@ -4936,6 +4936,12 @@ static void hci_phy_link_complete_evt(struct hci_dev *hdev,
                return;
        }

+       if (!hcon->amp_mgr) {
+               hci_conn_del(hcon);
+               hci_dev_unlock(hdev);
+               return;
+       }
+
        if (ev->status) {
                hci_conn_del(hcon);
                hci_dev_unlock(hdev);


The value of 'hcon->amp_mgr' getting NULL due to hci_conn_hash_lookup_handle call
, and there is not any checks there for the members of hcon, which enables 
hci_phy_link_complete_evt() to dereference 'hcon->amp_mgr' as NULL.

please suggest improvements to this patch.

Regards,
Anmol
