SubjectRe: [PATCH net] net: cpsw: fix NULL pointer exception in the probe error path
From: Antoine Tenart <>
Date: Wed, 21 Aug 2019 16:41:23 +0200

> In certain cases when the probe function fails the error path calls

> issue as cpsw_remove_dt() uses platform_get_drvdata() to retrieve the
> cpsw_common data and leds to a NULL pointer exception. This patches
> fixes it by calling platform_set_drvdata() earlier in the probe.
