Subject: [PATCH 2/2] hwmon: core: fix potential memory leak in *hwmon_device_register*
Date: Fri, 17 May 2019 16:13:37 -0700
Message-ID: <20190517231337.27859-3-eduval@amazon.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20190517231337.27859-1-eduval@amazon.com>

When registering a hwmon device with HWMON_C_REGISTER_TZ flag
in place, the hwmon subsystem will attempt to register the device
also with the thermal subsystem. When the of-thermal registration
fails, __hwmon_device_register jumps to ida_remove, leaving
the locally allocated hwdev pointer and also the hdev registered.

This patch fixes both issues by jumping to a new label that
will first unregister hdev and the fall into the kfree of hwdev
to finally remove the idas and propagate the error code.
