Subject: [PATCH] [PATCH] rapidio: Potential oops in riocm_ch_listen()
Date: Thu, 10 Jan 2019 13:02:30 +0000
Message-ID: <20190110130230.GB27017@kadam> (raw)

If riocm_get_channel() fails, then we should just return -EINVAL.
Calling riocm_put_channel() will trigger a NULL dereference and
generally we should call put() if the get() didn't succeed.

Fixes: b6e8d4aa1110 ("rapidio: add RapidIO channelized messaging driver")
