Subject[PATCH] staging: exfat: check for null return from call to FAT_getblk
Date
From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@canonical.com>

A call to FAT_getblk is missing a null return check which can
lead to a null pointer dereference. Fix this by adding a null
check to match all the other FAT_getblk return sanity checks.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Dereference null return")
Fixes: c48c9f7ff32b ("staging: exfat: add exfat filesystem code to staging")
