Subject: [PATCH v2 0/1] nfc: llcp: a fix after syzbot report


Syzbot reported an easily reproducible NULL pointer dereference which I was
struggling to analyze:

Although direct fix is obvious, I could not actually find the exact race
condition scenario leading to it.  The patch fixes the issue - at least under
my QEMU - however all this code looks racy, so I have a feeling I am plumbing
one leak without fixing root cause.

Therefore I would appreciate some more thoughts on first commit.

Under QEMU only. The NFC/LLCP code was not really tested on a device.

Best regards,
