4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Arnd Bergmann <a...@arndb.de>

commit 93be2b74279c15c2844684b1a027fdc71dd5d9bf upstream.

gcc-7 complains that wl3501_cs passes NULL into a function that
then uses the argument as the input for memcpy:

drivers/net/wireless/wl3501_cs.c: In function 'wl3501_get_scan':
include/net/iw_handler.h:559:3: error: argument 2 null where non-null expected 
   memcpy(stream + point_len, extra, iwe->u.data.length);

This works fine here because iwe->u.data.length is guaranteed to be 0
and the memcpy doesn't actually have an effect.

Making the length check explicit avoids the warning and should have
no other effect here.

Also check the pointer itself, since otherwise we get warnings
elsewhere in the code.
