Subject: [PATCH] edac: Fix reference count leak in edac_pci_main_kobj_setup.
Date: Thu, 28 May 2020 15:22:37 -0500
Message-ID: <20200528202238.18078-1-wu000273@umn.edu> (raw)

From: Qiushi Wu <wu000273@umn.edu>

kobject_init_and_add() should be handled when it return an error,
because kobject_init_and_add() takes reference even when it fails.
If this function returns an error, kobject_put() must be called to
properly clean up the memory associated with the object. Previous
commit "b8eb718348b8" fixed a similar problem. Thus replace calling
kfree() by calling kobject_put().

Fixes: b2ed215a3338 ("Kobject: change drivers/edac to use kobject_init_and_add")
