In mpt3sas_transport_update_links(), there is an if statement 
on line 994 to check whether mpt3sas_phy->phy is NULL:
    if (mpt3sas_phy->phy)

When mpt3sas_phy->phy is NULL, it is used on line 999:
    dev_printk(KERN_INFO, &mpt3sas_phy->phy->dev, ...)

Thus, a possible null-pointer dereference may occur.

To fix this bug, mpt3sas_phy->phy is checked before being used.

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