Series [v2,1/2] batman-adv: Check ptr for NULL before reducing its refcnt | expand

Commit Message

Sven Eckelmann Aug. 8, 2021, 6:23 p.m. UTC
The check if a batman-adv related object is NULL or not is now directly in
the batadv_*_put functions. It is not needed anymore to perform this check
outside these function:

The changes were generated using a coccinelle semantic patch:
