In iscsit_tpg_add_network_portal(), there is an if statement on line 496
to check whether tpg->tpg_tiqn is NULL:
    if (tpg->tpg_tiqn)

When tpg->tpg_tiqn is NULL, it is used on line 508:
    pr_debug(..., tpg->tpg_tiqn->tiqn, ...);

Thus, a possible null-pointer dereference may occur.

To fix this bug, tpg->tpg_tiqn is checked before being used.

This bug is found by a static analysis tool STCheck written by us.

I don't really think this is helpful.  The first question is, is the
implied might be NULL check correct?  The tpg_tiqn is always set by a
non-dummy driver and I think network configuration is only done for the
non dummy driver, so I suspect the NULL check is wrong.  Secondly even
if the NULL check were correct, I think there's still a need for some
debugging output, so the proposed patch also looks wrong.
