Subject: [PATCH v2] tty: serial: 8250: serial_cs: Fix a memory leak in error handling path
Date: Tue, 25 May 2021 21:44:04 +0200
Message-ID: <dc25f96b7faebf42e60fe8d02963c941cf4d8124.1621971720.git.christophe.jaillet@wanadoo.fr> (raw)

In the probe function, if the final 'serial_config()' fails, 'info' is
leaking.

Add a resource handling path to free this memory.

v2: Use an error handling path instead of introducing some managed
    resources

I've not been able to find a Fixes tag. All I know is that it is old!
