Subject[PATCH 4.4 14/41] powerpc/pseries: Fix parent_dn reference leak in add_dt_node()
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Tyrel Datwyler <>

commit b537ca6fede69a281dc524983e5e633d79a10a08 upstream.

A reference to the parent device node is held by add_dt_node() for the
node to be added. If the call to dlpar_configure_connector() fails
add_dt_node() returns ENOENT and that reference is not freed.

Add a call to of_node_put(parent_dn) prior to bailing out after a
failed dlpar_configure_connector() call.

Fixes: 8d5ff320766f ("powerpc/pseries: Make dlpar_configure_connector parent node aware")
