SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 02/13] PCI: prevent duplicate slot names
Hi Willy,

Thanks for the review. I've pretty much incorporated all your
comments with a few exceptions...

As Rolf Eike Beer pointed out, a failed krealloc() will leak the
old version of new_name, so I did this instead:

kfree(new_name);
new_name = kmalloc(len, GFP_KERNEL);

This is better than krealloc() in several ways:

1. we avoid the unneeded memcpy that krealloc() does for
us. we don't need it because we're going to sprintf over
it anyway.

2. the explicit kfree(new_name) means we won't leak
anything.

I think this should be sufficient for the following reasons:

1. This API was added for ppc; I can't imagine any other
arch actually needing to renumber a slot after create.

2. I added this check at BenH's request as a "belt and
suspenders" sort of thing; neither of us expects to
really get a collision here ever, and if we do, it's an
OFW error (iirc).

3. I think I will return early though, because otherwise,
the refcounting will get very confused.

Thanks.
