Subject: [PATCH] scsi: Fix reference count leak in iscsi_boot_create_kobj.
Date: Thu, 28 May 2020 15:13:53 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

From: Qiushi Wu <>

kobject_init_and_add() should be handled when it return an error,
because kobject_init_and_add() takes reference even when it fails.
If this function returns an error, kobject_put() must be called to
properly clean up the memory associated with the object. Previous
commit "b8eb718348b8" fixed a similar problem. Thus replace calling
kfree() by calling kobject_put().
