Subject: [PATCH] ubifs: Fix wrong memory allocation
Date: Wed,  4 Dec 2019 11:09:58 +0100
Message-ID: <> (raw)

In create_default_filesystem() when we allocate the idx node we must use
the idx_node_size we calculated just one line before, not tmp, which
contains completely other data.

Fixes: c4de6d7e4319 ("ubifs: Refactor create_default_filesystem()")
Cc: # v4.20+
