Subject[PATCH 4.4 075/160] kgdboc: Passing ekgdboc to command line causes panic
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

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

commit 1bd54d851f50dea6af30c3e6ff4f3e9aab5558f9 upstream.

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

PANIC: early exception 0xe3 IP 10:ffffffff8fbbb620 error 0 cr2 0x0

This patch adds a check to prevent the panic.
