Subject: [PATCH 1/2] video: fbdev: Use framebuffer_release instead of kfree to free a frame buffer
Date: Thu, 10 Dec 2020 14:48:08 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Use 'framebuffer_release()' instead of 'kfree()' to undo a
'framebuffer_alloc()' call, both in the error handling path of the probe
function and in remove function.
