> Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH v5 2/5] pdump: check getenv return value
> inside pdump_get_socket_path(), getenv can return a NULL pointer if the
> match for SOCKET_PATH_HOME is not found in the environment. NULL check is
> added to return -1 immediately. Since pdump_get_socket_path() returns -1
> now, wherever this function is called there the return value is checked
> and error message is logged.
