The variable rdma is checked when event->event is equal to 
RDMA_CM_EVENT_DISCONNECTED:
  if (rdma)

This indicates that it can be NULL. If so, a null-pointer dereference will 
occur when calling complete():
  complete(&rdma->cm_done);

To fix this possible null-pointer dereference, calling complete() only 
when rdma is not NULL.

You need to explain how is it possible and blindly set if () checks.
I would say first "if (rdma)" is not needed, but don't know for sure.

Sounds like static analysis because there's a if (rdma) check in
RDMA_CM_EVENT_DISCONNECTED above, so if that needed check then it will
bug right afterwards

I'd tend to agree I don't think it's possible client->trans is null
there (it's filled right after rdma_create_id which defines the handler,
there might be a window where the callback is called before? But as I
understand it shouldn't be called until we resolve address and connect
then later disconnect)

So, I agree with Leon - unless you have a backtrace of a real bug
let's remove the other 'if' if you want to cleanup something for your
robot.
