Subject: [PATCH v2] misc: fastrpc: fix potential fastrpc_invoke_ctx leak
Date: Tue, 12 May 2020 12:09:30 +0100
Message-ID: <> (raw)

fastrpc_invoke_ctx can have refcount of 2 in error path where
rpmsg_send() fails to send invoke message. decrement the refcount
properly in the error path to fix this leak.

This also fixes below static checker warning:

drivers/misc/fastrpc.c:990 fastrpc_internal_invoke()
warn: 'ctx->refcount.refcount.ref.counter' not decremented on lines: 990.

Fixes: c68cfb718c8f ("misc: fastrpc: Add support for context")
Reported-by: Dan Carpenter <>
Signed-off-by: Srinivas Kandagatla <>
Changes since v1:
	moved fastrpc_context_put to fastrpc_invoke_send()
