Subject: [dpdk-stable] [PATCH] net/ice/base: fix null pointer dereferences for parser
Date: Wed, 13 Oct 2021 10:34:55 +0000
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Null-checking "p" suggests that it may be null, but it has already
been dereferenced on all paths leading to the check. Thus correct
the code lines and remove the redundant line.

Fixes: c84f8aa2100c ("net/ice/base: add parser runtime skeleton")
