Subject: [PATCH] perf tools: Fix segfault in cpu_cache_level__read
Date: Thu, 12 Sep 2019 12:52:35 +0200
Message-ID: <20190912105235.10689-1-jolsa@kernel.org> (raw)

We release wrong pointer on error path in
cpu_cache_level__read function, leading to
segfault:

  (gdb) r record ls
  Starting program: /root/perf/tools/perf/perf record ls
  ...
  [ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
  double free or corruption (out)

  Thread 1 "perf" received signal SIGABRT, Aborted.
  0x00007ffff7463798 in raise () from /lib64/power9/libc.so.6
  (gdb) bt
