Couldn't this be fixed by checking the pointer for NULL here or
(probably better) populating codec_freq_data earlier so that it is
always valid?

This fix looks like it is replacing a NULL pointer dereference with
access to data initialized to fallback values (which may or may not be
meaningful), and I don't see the need to copy what is effectively
constant data into each instance.
