Subject[PATCH 4.11 48/84] perf/x86/intel/uncore: Fix wrong box pointer check
Date
4.11-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Kan Liang <kan.liang@intel.com>

commit 80c65fdb4c6920e332a9781a3de5877594b07522 upstream.

Should not init a NULL box. It will cause system crash.
The issue looks like caused by a typo.

This was not noticed because there is no NULL box. Also, for most
boxes, they are enabled by default. The init code is not critical.

Fixes: fff4b87e594a ("perf/x86/intel/uncore: Make package handling more robust")
