> One issue caught by Coverity 343408
> *deref_parm: Directly dereferencing parameter val->val.
> In writeback_tdes_hex_str(), tmp_val is initialised to null.
> tmp_val.val is updated only if keys are found.
> If keys are not found,it doesn't fails but continues
> to invoke writeback_hex_str(),where val->val is accessed
> without null check.
> The fix is to return the error,
> if keys are not found in writeback_tdes_hex_str().
