Subject: [PATCH] i3c: master: fix a memory leak bug
Date: Sun, 11 Aug 2019 13:33:06 -0500
Message-ID: <1565548386-4485-1-git-send-email-wenwen@cs.uga.edu> (raw)

In i3c_master_getmwl_locked(), the buffer used for the dest payload data is
allocated using kzalloc() in i3c_ccc_cmd_dest_init(). Later on, the length
of the dest payload data is checked against 'sizeof(*mwl)'. If they are not
equal, -EIO is returned to indicate the error. However, the allocated
buffer is not deallocated on this path, leading to a memory leak.

To fix the above issue, free the buffer before returning the error.
