Subject[PATCH 4.4 066/160] printk: Fix panic caused by passing log_buf_len to command line
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: He Zhe <zhe.he@windriver.com>

commit 277fcdb2cfee38ccdbe07e705dbd4896ba0c9930 upstream.

log_buf_len_setup does not check input argument before passing it to
simple_strtoull. The argument would be a NULL pointer if "log_buf_len",
without its value, is set in command line and thus causes the following
panic.

This patch adds a check to prevent the panic.
