Subject: [PATCH] drm/vc4: Fix an error code vc4_create_object()
Date: Mon, 15 Jun 2020 11:27:54 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200615112754.GB1207669@mwanda> (raw)

The vc4_create_object() needs to return NULL on error, not error
pointers.  If it returns an error pointer then that will lead to an
Oops in the callers.  Fortunately, in current kernels small allocations
always succed so this will never happen.

Fixes: c826a6e10644 ("drm/vc4: Add a BO cache.")
