From: Thierry Reding <treding@nvidia.com>

When a thermal zone is looked up by an ID and no zone is found matching
that ID, the thermal_zone_get_by_id() function will return a pointer to
the thermal zone list head which isn't actually a valid thermal zone.

This can lead to a subsequent crash because a valid pointer is returned
to the called, but dereferencing that pointer as struct thermal_zone is
not safe.

Fixes: 329b064fbd13 ("thermal: core: Get thermal zone by id")

Hi Thierry,

Applied, thanks for the fix!

I ran into this as I was experimenting with the new netlink interface
and got things wrong. Do you have any userspace that you use for testing
this that I can use as a reference?

I have managed to get it to work now, but I'm still interested in any
userspace that you might have for this.

Hi Thierry,

thanks for testing the code.
