Subject[PATCH][next] wil6210: fix potential null dereference of ndev before null check
Date
From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@canonical.com>

The pointer ndev is being dereferenced before it is being null checked,
hence there is a potential null pointer deference. Fix this by only
dereferencing ndev after it has been null checked

Detected by CoverityScan, CID#1467010 ("Dereference before null check")

Fixes: e00243fab84b ("wil6210: infrastructure for multiple virtual interfaces")
Signed-off-by: Colin Ian King <colin.king@canonical.com>
