Hi Markus,

It seems that Lad Prabhakar detected a critical issue introduced by the patch instead of a minor bug fixed by it. So, we should take care of this first, but I will address your notes as well.

vpif_remove() from vpif_capture.ko already both frees vpif_obj.sd and unregisters the V4L2 device. So, there is no need to fix the patch.

BTW, other drivers, e.g. drivers/media/platform/renesas-ceu.c, do not clean up memory allocated by probe within v4l2_async_notifier_operations.complete as well.

Hi Lad,

Yet again I can not demonstrate you a nice error trace corresponding to the bug fixed by the patch. Indeed, there is a branch in vpif_probe() that explicitly invokes vpif_probe_complete() and the patch targets the possible issue that can happen during this. 

When I developed the patch I saw on vpif_display.ko. It looks very similar regarding things touched by the patch. In particular, it does not free vpif_obj.sd in its vpif_probe_complete(). But now I see that it does this in vpif_remove()!

Do you think that vpif_capture.ko should do the same? If so, I guess that I should fix the patch appropriately since likely it just replaces one (very rare) bug with another one (on a typical execution path).

vpif_probe_complete() is a async callback and probe() should have
already completed by then.

In case of errors vpif_probe_complete() releases memory for vpif_obj.sd
and unregisters the V4L2 device. But then this is done again by
vpif_probe() itself. The patch removes the cleaning from
vpif_probe_complete().

Found by Linux Driver Verification project (linuxtesting.org).
