Subject: [PATCH] firmware: arm_scmi: Free mailbox channels if probe fails
Date: Tue,  3 Aug 2021 15:22:22 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Mailbox channels for the base protocol are setup during probe.
There can be a scenario where probe fails to acquire the base
protocol due to a timeout leading to cleaning up of all device
managed memory including the scmi_mailbox structure setup during
mailbox_chan_setup function.
[   12.735104]arm-scmi soc:qcom,scmi: timed out in resp(caller: version_get+0x84/0x140)
[   12.735224]arm-scmi soc:qcom,scmi: unable to communicate with SCMI
[   12.735947]arm-scmi: probe of soc:qcom,scmi failed with error -110

Now when a message arrives at cpu slightly after the timeout, the mailbox
controller will try to call the rx_callback of the client and might end
up accessing freed memory.
[   12.758363][    C0] Call trace:
[   12.758367][    C0]  rx_callback+0x24/0x160
[   12.758372][    C0]  mbox_chan_received_data+0x44/0x94
[   12.758386][    C0]  __handle_irq_event_percpu+0xd4/0x240
This patch frees the mailbox channels setup during probe and adds some more
error handling in case the probe fails.
