[appleir] BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference

From: Luis Henriques
Date: Tue Oct 29 2013 - 10:51:48 EST


James has reported a NULL pointer dereference[1] on the appleir
driver. From the bug report[2] it looks like it is 100%
reproducible using a 3.12-rc6 kernel simply by pressing any button on
the IR remote.

>From the stack trace, it looks like input_event is invoked with the
input_dev parameter set to NULL, which seems to indicate that
appleir_input_configured is never invoked.

Any ideas?
