mac80211: fix NULL pointer dereference when ftrace is enabled
Zhu Yi [Tue, 26 Jan 2010 07:58:57 +0000 (15:58 +0800)]
I got below kernel oops when I try to bring down the network interface if
ftrace is enabled. The root cause is drv_ampdu_action() is passed with a
NULL ssn pointer in the BA session tear down case. We need to check and
avoid dereferencing it in trace entry assignment.

BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference
