Sir, sent_cmd was freed before this condition check, thats why i checked it,

i think i should check it before the free of hdev->sent_cmd like,

if (hdev->sent_cmd)
	kfree_skb(hdev->sent_cmd);

what's your opininon on this.

syzbot showed that this line is accessed irrespective of the null value it contains, so  added a 
pointer check for that.

please give some opinions on this,

if (!bredr_hcon) {
	hci_dev_unlock(hdev);
        return;
}

Thanks,
