Subject[PATCH 4.19 042/103] misc: ibmvsm: Fix potential NULL pointer dereference
Date
4.19-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Gustavo A. R. Silva <gustavo@embeddedor.com>

commit e25df7812c91f62581301f9a7ac102acf92e4937 upstream.

There is a potential NULL pointer dereference in case kzalloc()
fails and returns NULL.

Fix this by adding a NULL check on *session*

Also, update the function header with information about the
expected return on failure and remove unnecessary variable rc.

This issue was detected with the help of Coccinelle.

Fixes: 0eca353e7ae7 ("misc: IBM Virtual Management Channel Driver (VMC)")
