In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: mlxsw: spectrum_acl_tcam: Fix NULL pointer dereference in error path When calling mlxsw_sp_acl_tcam_region_destroy() from an error path after failing to attach the region to an ACL group, we hit a NULL pointer dereference upon 'region->group->tcam' [1]. Fix by retrieving the 'tcam' pointer using mlxsw_sp_acl_to_tcam().
