Subject[PATCH 4.14 26/92] net/mlx5e: Dont attempt to dereference the ppriv struct if not being eswitch manager
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Or Gerlitz <ogerlitz@mellanox.com>

[ Upstream commit 8ffd569aaa818f2624ca821d9a246342fa8b8c50 ]

The check for cpu hit statistics was not returning immediate false for
any non vport rep netdev and hence we crashed (say on mlx5 probed VFs) if
user-space tool was calling into any possible netdev in the system.

Fix that by doing a proper check before dereferencing.

Fixes: 1d447a39142e ('net/mlx5e: Extendable vport representor netdev private data')
