Subject[PATCH v2] ASoC: rt5640: Fix NULL dereference on module unload
The rt5640->jack is NULL if jack is already disabled at the time of
driver's module unloading.

Signed-off-by: Dmitry Osipenko <>


v2: - Addressed review comment from Takashi Iwai by making patch's diff a
bit cleaner and simpler.

- Addressed review comment from Mark Brown by removing noisy backtrace
from the commit's message and moving it after --- in order to keep it
discoverable in the ML archive.


Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000024
