Subject[PATCH 4.14 021/126] net: ena: ena-com.c: prevent NULL pointer dereference
From: Arthur Kiyanovski <>

[ Upstream commit c207979f5ae10ed70aff1bb13f39f0736973de99 ]

comp_ctx can be NULL in a very rare case when an admin command is executed
during the execution of ena_remove().

The bug scenario is as follows:

* ena_destroy_device() sets the comp_ctx to be NULL
* An admin command is executed before executing unregister_netdev(),
this can still happen because our device can still receive callbacks
from the netdev infrastructure such as ethtool commands.
* When attempting to access the comp_ctx, the bug occurs since it's set

Added a check that comp_ctx is not NULL

Fixes: 1738cd3ed342 ("net: ena: Add a driver for Amazon Elastic Network Adapters (ENA)")
