Subject[PATCH 5.10 380/452] drm/nouveau/clk: Fix an incorrect NULL check on list iterator
From: Xiaomeng Tong <>

commit 1c3b2a27def609473ed13b1cd668cb10deab49b4 upstream.

The bug is here:
if (nvkm_cstate_valid(clk, cstate, max_volt, clk->temp))
return cstate;

The list iterator value 'cstate' will *always* be set and non-NULL
by list_for_each_entry_from_reverse(), so it is incorrect to assume
that the iterator value will be unchanged if the list is empty or no
element is found (In fact, it will be a bogus pointer to an invalid
structure object containing the HEAD). Also it missed a NULL check
at callsite and may lead to invalid memory access after that.

To fix this bug, just return 'encoder' when found, otherwise return
NULL. And add the NULL check.

Fixes: 1f7f3d91ad38a ("drm/nouveau/clk: Respect voltage limits in nvkm_cstate_prog")
