A few line below you divide by the lanes parameter without checking whether it 
is equal to 0 first, which would also cause issues.

I believe that invalid values in input parameters should only be handled 
explicitly when considered acceptable for the caller to pass such values. In 
this case a NULL cfg pointer is a bug in the caller, which would get noticed 
during development if the kernel panics.
