Subject: [PATCH] watchdog: Fix an invalid memory access in 'watchdog_cdev_unregister()'
Date: Thu, 29 Jul 2021 18:16:58 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <dcb65e66acd1a50d65635b35d0d340846c7d10c7.1627575359.git.christophe.jaillet@wanadoo.fr> (raw)

A few lines before 'watchdog_hrtimer_pretimeout_stop(wdd)', we explicitly
set 'wdd->wd_data' to NULL.
So, it is more than likely than this call will lead to an invalid
memory access.

Move this call before the 'wdd->wd_data = NULL;'

Fixes: 7b7d2fdc8c3e ("watchdog: Add hrtimer-based pretimeout feature")
Signed-off-by: Christophe JAILLET <christophe.jaillet@wanadoo.fr>

Completely untested!
Not sure at all, that it is the way to fix it.
