Subject: [PATCH 1/1] dmaengine: qcom: Fix possible memory leak
Date: Thu, 17 Jun 2021 16:20:58 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

When krealloc() fails to expand the memory and returns NULL, the original
memory is not released. In addition, subsequent memcpy() operation will
overwrite the entire valid memory space, so using krealloc() to preserve
the old content is not necessary.

Change to release the old memory and then apply for new memory.

Fixes: 5d0c3533a19f ("dmaengine: qcom: Add GPI dma driver")
