Sorry but I don't quite get you.

If you look at a mixed source assembly listing for fc_host_dispatch() [1] we load
the the offset of 24 from %r12 into %r1 and then the beginning of %r1 into %r2
and crash. So if we now check if  job->request_len is smaller than uint32_t we
know we can't have a messagecode in the request and bail out early, instead of
accessing a possible NULL pointer. At least that's my analysis, feel free to
correct me if I'm wrong.

[1] Listing:
static int fc_bsg_host_dispatch(struct Scsi_Host *shost, struct bsg_job *job)
{
        struct fc_internal *i = to_fc_internal(shost->transportt);
        struct fc_bsg_request *bsg_request = job->request;
    5d54:       e3 10 c0 18 00 04       lg      %r1,24(%r12)
        struct fc_bsg_reply *bsg_reply = job->reply;
    5d5a:       e3 b0 c0 20 00 04       lg      %r11,32(%r12)
        int cmdlen = sizeof(uint32_t);  /* start with length of msgcode */
        int ret;

        /* check if we really have all the request data needed */
        if (job->request_len < cmdlen) {
    5d60:       a7 c4 00 48             jle     5df0 <fc_bsg_dispatch+0x1f0>
                ret = -ENOMSG;
                goto fail_host_msg;
        }

        /* Validate the host command */
        switch (bsg_request->msgcode) {
    5d64:       58 20 10 00             l       %r2,0(%r1)
    5d68:       c2 2f 80 00 00 03       clfi    %r2,2147483651
