Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.9 056/251] staging: most: cdev: add missing check for cdev_add failure
Date: Thu, 16 Jan 2020 12:33:25 -0500
Message-ID: <20200116173641.22137-16-sashal@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200116173641.22137-1-sashal@kernel.org>

From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@canonical.com>

[ Upstream commit 5ae890780e1b4d08f2c0c5d4ea96fc3928fc0ee9 ]

Currently the call to cdev_add is missing a check for failure. Fix this by
checking for failure and exiting via a new error path that ensures the
allocated comp_channel struct is kfree'd.

Detected by CoverityScan, CID#1462359 ("Unchecked return value")

Fixes: 9bc79bbcd0c5 ("Staging: most: add MOST driver's aim-cdev module")
