Subject: [PATCH net-next] mac80211_hwsim: fix possible memory leak in hwsim_new_radio_nl()
Date: Thu, 18 Jan 2018 02:23:34 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

'hwname' is malloced in hwsim_new_radio_nl() and should be freed
before leaving from the error handling cases, otherwise it will cause
memory leak.

Fixes: ff4dd73dd2b4 ("mac80211_hwsim: check HWSIM_ATTR_RADIO_NAME length")
