Subject: [Nouveau] [PATCH] drm/nouveau/core/object: fix double free on error in nvkm_ioctl_new()
Date: Mon, 14 Jun 2021 13:43:27 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <YMcyzyVyI4N6anBo@mwanda> (raw)

If nvkm_object_init() fails then we should not call nvkm_object_fini()
because it results in calling object->func->fini(object, suspend) twice.
Once inside the nvkm_object_init() function and once inside the
nvkm_object_fini() function.

Fixes: fbd58ebda9c8 ("drm/nouveau/object: merge with handle")
Signed-off-by: Dan Carpenter <>
This is something that I spotted while looking for reference counting
bugs.  I have tried running it, but it does not fix my crashes.  My
system is basically unusable.  It's something to do with the new version
of Firefox which triggers the refcount_t underflow, but switching to
Epiphany doesn't solve the issue either.
