[PATCH v2] clk: check ops pointer on clock register

From: Jerome Brunet
Date: Tue Dec 19 2017 - 03:33:54 EST

Nothing really prevents a provider from (trying to) register a clock
without providing the clock ops structure.

We do check the individual fields before using them, but not the
structure pointer itself. This may have the usual nasty consequences when
the pointer is dereferenced, most likely when checking one the field
during the initialization.

This is fixed by returning an error on clock register if the ops pointer
is NULL.

Changes since v1:
* Add WARN_ON so the error cannot be silently ignored
* Remove fixes tag
