SubjectRE: [PATCH] ice: ice_sched: fix an incorrect NULL check on list iterator
Date
If the control comes down to the loop then surely the VSI is already part of an aggregator (old). The aggregator vsi list should have that VSI information. My understanding is that if control comes here then you always find a valid entry and matching handle here. If that doesn't happen then we need to debug. The fix is kind of masking this problem.

Yep. This looks correct to me.
