Subject[PATCH 4.4 236/268] staging: rtl8192u: return -ENOMEM on failed allocation of priv->oldaddr
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

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

[ Upstream commit e1a7418529e33bc4efc346324557251a16a3e79b ]

Currently the allocation of priv->oldaddr is not null checked which will
lead to subsequent errors when accessing priv->oldaddr. Fix this with
a null pointer check and a return of -ENOMEM on allocation failure.

Detected with Coccinelle:
drivers/staging/rtl8192u/r8192U_core.c:1708:2-15: alloc with no test,
possible model on line 1723

Fixes: 8fc8598e61f6 ("Staging: Added Realtek rtl8192u driver to staging")
