Our static analysis tool finds a possible null-pointer dereference in 
the iwlegacy driver in Linux 5.14.0-rc3:

The variable rs_sta is checked in:
629:    if (rs_sta && !rs_sta->il)

This indicates that rs_sta can be NULL.
If so, some null-pointer dereferences will occur in some statements such as:
643:    idx = min(rs_sta->last_txrate_idx & 0xffff, RATE_COUNT_3945 - 1);
653:    if (rs_sta->start_rate != RATE_INVALID)

I am not quite sure whether this possible null-pointer dereference is 
real and how to fix it if it is real.
Any feedback would be appreciated, thanks!
