Hi,

Thanks for the patch, but the fix is the same as here:
https://www.mail-archive.com/linux-kernel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/msg1402451.html
and the answer is the same as there - I think you did not handle the
error at all. Did you test the error path in this case? How does it
behave? I think there is no point to replace one NULL pointer to
another NULL pointer right after it. :)

Best regards,
Krzysztof
