If the NULL test on h is needed in snd_harmony_mixer_init, then the
dereference should be after the NULL test.
Actually, there is a sequence of calls: snd_harmony_create, then
snd_harmony_pcm_init, and then snd_harmony_mixer_init. snd_harmony_create
initializes h, but may indeed leave it as NULL. There was no NULL test at
the beginning of snd_harmony_pcm_init, so I have added one. The NULL test
in snd_harmony_mixer_init is then not necessary, but in case the ordering
of the calls changes, I have left it, and moved the dereference after it.
A simplified version of the semantic match that detects this problem is as
expression x, E;
... when != \(x = E\|&x\)
* x == NULL
