Subject[PATCH 3.16 167/305] ARM: OMAP1: ams-delta: Fix possible use of uninitialized field
3.16.63-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Janusz Krzysztofik <>

commit cec83ff1241ec98113a19385ea9e9cfa9aa4125b upstream.

While playing with initialization order of modem device, it has been
discovered that under some circumstances (early console init, I
believe) its .pm() callback may be called before the
uart_port->private_data pointer is initialized from
plat_serial8250_port->private_data, resulting in NULL pointer
dereference. Fix it by checking for uninitialized pointer before using
it in modem_pm().
