Subject[PATCH 4.9 043/199] altera-stapl: check for a null key before strcasecmping it
Date
From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@canonical.com>

[ Upstream commit 9ccb645683ef46e3c52c12c088a368baa58447d4 ]

Currently the null check on key is occurring after the strcasecmp on
the key, hence there is a potential null pointer dereference on key.
Fix this by checking if key is null first. Also replace the == 0
check on strcasecmp with just the ! operator.

Detected by CoverityScan, CID#1248787 ("Dereference before null check")

Fixes: fa766c9be58b ("[media] Altera FPGA firmware download module")
