Subject[PATCH 4.20 133/183] net: dsa: Fix NPD checking for br_vlan_enabled()
4.20-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Florian Fainelli <>

[ Upstream not applicable ]

It is possible for the DSA slave network device not to be part of a
bridge, yet have an upper device like a VLAN device be part of a bridge.
When that VLAN device is enslaved, since it does not define any
switchdev_ops, we will recurse down to the lower/physical port device,
call switchdev_port_obj_add() with a VLAN, and here we will check
br_vlan_enabled() on a NULL dp->bridge_dev, thus causing a NULL pointer

This is no longer a problem upstream after commit d17d9f5e5143
("switchdev: Replace port obj add/del SDO with a notification").

Fixes: 2ea7a679ca2a ("net: dsa: Don't add vlans when vlan filtering is disabled")
