Subject: [PATCH] Driver core: platform: Add extra error check in devm_platform_get_irqs_affinity()
Date: Mon, 21 Dec 2020 22:30:55 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

The current check of nvec < minvec for nvec returned from
platform_irq_count() will not detect a negative error code in nvec.

This is because minvec is unsigned, and, as such, nvec is promoted to
unsigned in that check, which will make it a huge number (if it contained

In practice, an error should not occur in nvec for the only in-tree
user, but add a check anyway.

Fixes: e15f2fa959f2 ("driver core: platform: Add devm_platform_get_irqs_affinity()")
Reported-by: Dan Carpenter <>
Signed-off-by: John Garry <>
I hope that this can go through either irqchip or driver/core trees, thanks!
