There are some static checker warnings to look at from linux-next from
Tuesday.

drivers/staging/wfx/hif_tx.c:319 hif_join() error: we previously assumed 'channel' could be null (see line 315)
drivers/staging/wfx/main.c:228 wfx_send_pdata_pds() warn: potential NULL parameter dereference 'tmp_buf'
drivers/staging/wfx/hif_rx.c:177 hif_scan_complete_indication() warn: potential NULL parameter dereference 'wvif'

Some of these are unpublished checks that I haven't published because
they are too crap.  The rest of the email is just long explanations.
Skip if not required.

Unchecked dereference.

No check for allocation failure.

   228          ret = wfx_send_pds(wdev, tmp_buf, pds->size);
   229          kfree(tmp_buf);

#3

                                ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Smatch thinks wdev_to_wvif() can return NULL.

Same.

#5 and #6

drivers/staging/wfx/bus_sdio.c:221 wfx_sdio_probe() warn: 'bus->core' could be an error pointer

The wfx_init_common() function should return NULL instead of error
pointer if devm_gpiod_get_optional() fails.

#7
drivers/staging/wfx/hif_rx.c:26 hif_generic_confirm() warn: negative user subtract: 0-u16max - 4
    20  static int hif_generic_confirm(struct wfx_dev *wdev,

Can "len" get set to negative 4?

                        ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Negative error codes from gpiod_get_value() should be treated as error.

    99                  dev_warn(wdev->dev, "unexpected wake-up indication\n");

Can we output non-ascii to dmesg?  (I didn't add this Smatch check so I
don't really know the answer).

    34          // WFx only support 2GHz, else band information should be retrieved
    35          // from ieee80211_tx_info

    37          return band->bitrates[rate->idx].hw_value;

This code assumes that "rate->idx" can be all sort of invalid values
including negatives but it doesn't cap it against:

	if (rate->idx >= band->n_bitrates)
		return -1;

If you you read all the way down to the second end of the email then you
are a true hero.  regards again,
