The patch

spi: bcm-qspi: Fix use after free in bcm_qspi_probe() in error path

has been applied to the spi tree at


All being well this means that it will be integrated into the linux-next
tree (usually sometime in the next 24 hours) and sent to Linus during
the next merge window (or sooner if it is a bug fix), however if
problems are discovered then the patch may be dropped or reverted.

You may get further e-mails resulting from automated or manual testing
and review of the tree, please engage with people reporting problems and
send followup patches addressing any issues that are reported if needed.

If any updates are required or you are submitting further changes they
should be sent as incremental updates against current git, existing
patches will not be replaced.

Please add any relevant lists and maintainers to the CCs when replying
to this mail.

Subject: [PATCH] spi: bcm-qspi: Fix use after free in bcm_qspi_probe() in
error path

There was an inversion in how the error path in bcm_qspi_probe() is done
which would make us trip over a KASAN use-after-free report. Turns out
that qspi->dev_ids does not get allocated until later in the probe
process. Fix this by introducing a new lable: qspi_resource_err which
takes care of cleaning up the SPI master instance.
