Subject: [PATCH] phy: mdio: fix memory leak
Date: Mon, 27 Sep 2021 14:20:17 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210927112017.19108-1-paskripkin@gmail.com> (raw)

Syzbot reported memory leak in MDIO bus interface, the problem was in
wrong state logic.

MDIOBUS_ALLOCATED indicates 2 states:
	1. Bus is only allocated
	2. Bus allocated and __mdiobus_register() fails, but
	   device_register() was called

In case of device_register() has been called we should call put_device()
to correctly free the memory allocated for this device, but mdiobus_free()
was just calling kfree(dev) in case of MDIOBUS_ALLOCATED state

To avoid this behaviour we can add new intermediate state, which means,
that we have called device_regiter(), but failed on any of the next steps.
Clean up process for this state is the same as for MDIOBUS_UNREGISTERED,
but MDIOBUS_UNREGISTERED name does not fit to the logic described above.

Fixes: 46abc02175b3 ("phylib: give mdio buses a device tree presence")
