Subject[Linux-kernel-mentees] [PATCH v2 net] rose: Fix Null pointer dereference in rose_send_frame()
Date
rose_send_frame() dereferences `neigh->dev` when called from
rose_transmit_clear_request(), and the first occurance of the `neigh`
is in rose_loopback_timer() as `rose_loopback_neigh`, and it is initialized
in rose_add_loopback_neigh() as NULL. i.e when `rose_loopback_neigh` used in
rose_loopback_timer() its `->dev` was still NULL and rose_loopback_timer()
was calling rose_rx_call_request() without checking for NULL.

- net/rose/rose_link.c
This bug seems to get triggered in this line:

rose_call = (ax25_address *)neigh->dev->dev_addr;

Fix it by adding NULL checking for `rose_loopback_neigh->dev` in rose_loopback_timer().
