[PATCH 5.1 034/121] dmaengine: dw-axi-dmac: fix null dereference when pointer first is null

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon Jun 24 2019 - 06:09:36 EST

[ Upstream commit 0788611c9a0925c607de536b2449de5ed98ef8df ]

In the unlikely event that axi_desc_get returns a null desc in the
very first iteration of the while-loop the error exit path ends
up calling axi_desc_put on a null pointer 'first' and this causes
a null pointer dereference. Fix this by adding a null check on
pointer 'first' before calling axi_desc_put.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Explicit null dereference")
Fixes: 1fe20f1b8454 ("dmaengine: Introduce DW AXI DMAC driver")
