ppp: potential NULL dereference in ppp_mp_explode()
Dan Carpenter [Fri, 10 Sep 2010 01:58:10 +0000 (01:58 +0000)]
Smatch complains because we check whether "pch->chan" is NULL and then
dereference it unconditionally on the next line.  Partly the reason this
bug was introduced is because code was too complicated.  I've simplified
it a little.
