Subject[PATCH 4.19 08/97] thunderbolt: Prevent crash if non-active NVMem file is read
Date
From: Mika Westerberg <mika.westerberg@linux.intel.com>

commit 03cd45d2e219301880cabc357e3cf478a500080f upstream.

The driver does not populate .reg_read callback for the non-active NVMem
because the file is supposed to be write-only. However, it turns out
NVMem subsystem does not yet support this and expects that the .reg_read
callback is provided. If user reads the binary attribute it triggers
NULL pointer dereference like this one:

BUG: kernel NULL pointer dereference, address: 0000000000000000
...
Call Trace:
bin_attr_nvmem_read+0x64/0x80
kernfs_fop_read+0xa7/0x180
vfs_read+0xbd/0x170
ksys_read+0x5a/0xd0
do_syscall_64+0x43/0x150
entry_SYSCALL_64_after_hwframe+0x44/0xa9

Fix this in the driver by providing .reg_read callback that always
returns an error.
