DescriptionIn the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: PCI: endpoint: Fix NULL pointer dereference for ->get_features() get_features ops of pci_epc_ops may return NULL, causing NULL pointer dereference in pci_epf_test_alloc_space function. Let us add a check for pci_epc_feature pointer in pci_epf_test_bind before we access it to avoid any such NULL pointer dereference and return -ENOTSUPP in case pci_epc_feature is not found. When the patch is not applied and EPC features is not implemented in the platform driver, we see the following dump due to kernel NULL pointer dereference.
