priv is being dereferenced when it is still null, hence there is an

Also, memory allocated for netdev at line 854:
netdev = alloc_etherdev(sizeof(*priv));
is not being free'd, hence there is a memory leak.

Fix this by null checking priv before dererefencing it and free netdev
before return.

This isn't required because the next thing we do to card is kfree(card).

I got it.

That's too complicated.  Just do:



Please send a v2 patch.

Sure thing, I'll send it shortly.
