Subject[PATCH 4.15 042/128] staging: rtl8822be: fix missing null check on dev_alloc_skb return
Date
4.15-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@canonical.com>


[ Upstream commit 3eb23426e1749a0483bc4c9b18e51f657569e3ed ]

dev_alloc_skb can potentially return NULL, so add a null check to
avoid a null pointer dereference on skb

Detected by CoverityScan, CID#1454558 ("Dereference on null return")

Fixes: 7e5b796cde7e ("staging: r8822be: Add the driver code")
