Subject: Linux kernel: nfc: null ptr dereference in llcp_sock_getname

 Hi, there was a null pointer dereference in llcp_sock_getname in
net/nfc/llcp_sock.c and reproduced it in linux-5.13.0-rc2. An
unprivileged user can trigger this bug and cause denial of service.

#Root Cause
After creating an nfc socket, bind the address by calling bind(), if
LLCP_SAP_MAX was used as SAP, it cause the bind() failed and there
would set llcp_sock->service_name  as NULL.

Although bind() returns an error here, it does not affect calling
other socket functions. sock_getname() would invoke
llcp_sock_getname(), llcp_sock_getname copied service  name from
llcp_sock->service_name by memcpy but llcp_sock->service_name is NULL.

the patch for this issue:

CVE not assigned.
