Subject[PATCH 2/6] drivers/media/radio: Correct use after free
From: Julia Lawall <julia@diku.dk>

It is not clear how to share the unlock in the case where the structure
containing the lock has to be freed. So the unlock is now duplicated, with
one copy moved before the free. The unlock label furthermore is no longer
useful and is thus deleted.

A simplified version of the semantic match that finds this problem is as
follows: (http://coccinelle.lip6.fr/)

// <smpl>
@@
expression x,e;
identifier f;
iterator I;
statement S;
@@

*kfree(x);
... when != &x
when != x = e
when != I(x,...) S
*x->f
// </smpl>
