Subject: [PATCH] memcg: css_alloc should return an ERR_PTR value on error
Date: Tue, 21 Jun 2016 12:57:40 -0400
Message-ID: <20160621165740.GJ3262@mtj.duckdns.org> (raw)

mem_cgroup_css_alloc() was returning NULL on failure while cgroup core
expected it to return an ERR_PTR value leading to the following NULL
deref after a css allocation failure.  Fix it by return
ERR_PTR(-ENOMEM) instead.  I'll also update cgroup core so that it
can handle NULL returns.

  mkdir: page allocation failure: order:6, mode:0x240c0c0(GFP_KERNEL|__GFP_COMP|__GFP_ZERO)
