Subject: [PATCH 4/4] livepatch: Handle allocation failure in the sample of shadow variable API
Date: Thu, 16 Jan 2020 16:31:45 +0100
Message-ID: <20200116153145.2392-5-pmladek@suse.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200116153145.2392-1-pmladek@suse.com>

klp_shadow_alloc() is not handled in the sample of shadow variable API.
It is not strictly necessary because livepatch_fix1_dummy_free() is
able to handle the potential failure. But it is an example and it should
use the API a clean way.
