Subject: [PATCH v2] misc: fastrpc: Fix an incomplete memory release in fastrpc_rpmsg_probe()
Date: Mon, 11 May 2020 17:27:22 +0100
Message-ID: <> (raw)

fastrpc_channel_ctx is not freed if misc_register() fails, this would
lead to a memory leak. Fix this leak by adding kfree in misc_register()
error path.
