Subject: [PATCH] ACPI: custom_method: fix memory leaks
Date: Fri, 16 Aug 2019 00:08:27 -0500
Message-ID: <1565932107-5864-1-git-send-email-wenwen@cs.uga.edu> (raw)

In cm_write(), 'buf' is allocated through kzalloc(). In the following
execution, if an error occurs, 'buf' is not deallocated, leading to memory
leaks. To fix this issue, free 'buf' before returning the error.
