Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.4 3/9] Input: cyttsp4_core - fix use after free bug
Date: Fri, 22 Nov 2019 14:50:08 -0500
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

From: Pan Bian <>

[ Upstream commit 79aae6acbef16f720a7949f8fc6ac69816c79d62 ]

The device md->input is used after it is released. Setting the device
data to NULL is unnecessary as the device is never used again. Instead,
md->input should be assigned NULL to avoid accessing the freed memory
accidently. Besides, checking md->si against NULL is superfluous as it
points to a variable address, which cannot be NULL.
