> Subject: [PATCH] platform/x86: dell-wmi-sysman: fix a NULL pointer dereference
>
> An upcoming Dell platform is causing a NULL pointer dereference
> in dell-wmi-sysman initialization. Validate that the input from
> BIOS matches correct ACPI types and abort module initialization
> if it fails.
>
> This leads to a memory leak that needs to be cleaned up properly.
