Subject: [PATCH] regmap: dev_get_regmap_match(): fix string comparison
Date: Fri,  3 Jul 2020 12:33:15 +0200
Message-ID: <20200703103315.267996-1-mkl@pengutronix.de> (raw)

This function is used by dev_get_regmap() to retrieve a regmap for the
specified device. If the device has more than one regmap, the name parameter
can be used to specify one.

The code here uses a pointer comparison to check for equal strings. This
however will probably always fail, as the regmap->name is allocated via
kstrdup_const() from the regmap's config->name.

Fix this by using strcmp() instead.

Hey,

I stumbled over this by accident. AFAICS there's no-one on the kernel making
use of the "name" parameter.

regrads,
Marc
