commit 18ae68fff392e445af3c2d8be9bef8a16e1c72a7 upstream.

WMI ops wrappers did not properly check for null
function pointers for spectral scan. This caused
null dereference crash with WMI-TLV based firmware
which doesn't implement spectral scan.

The crash could be triggered with:

  ip link set dev wlan0 up
  echo background > /sys/kernel/debug/ieee80211/phy0/ath10k/spectral_scan_ctl

The crash looked like this:
