Subject[PATCH] cxgb4: cm: fix a incorrect NULL check on list iterator
Date
The bug is here:
if (!pdev) {

The list iterator value 'pdev' will *always* be set and non-NULL
by for_each_netdev(), so it is incorrect to assume that the
iterator value will be NULL if the list is empty or no element
found (in this case, the check 'if (!pdev)' can be bypassed as
it always be false unexpectly).

To fix the bug, use a new variable 'iter' as the list iterator,
while use the original variable 'pdev' as a dedicated pointer to
point to the found element.
