Subject[PATCH 0/3] ACPI / Battery: fix NULL pointer dereference from battery
Date
The following oops happens non-deterministically when resuming from suspend on
a recent Acer Aspire laptop. The issue seems to be unregistering a led trigger
that was never registered. The led_trigger->next_trig list_head fields contain
zeroes, hence the NULL pointer dereference in list_del().

Due to the non-deterministic nature of the bug I am not sure whether the
patches eliminate the oops. However, the patches do address real problems in
drivers/acpi/battery.c.

There is a lack of error handling in battery.c so when power_supply_register()
fails the power_supply will continue be used as if there was no error. The
reason for this is that power_supply_register() leaves a stale
power_supply->dev pointer set when it returns an error and battery.c simply
uses that field to decide whether the power_supply is registered or not. This
is fixed in the first patch.

The second and third patches clean up the error handling in acpi_battery_add()
to prevent a use-after-free and properly release resources.

Here is the oops from a Debian 2.6.39-2-amd64 kernel. linux-2.6/master
contains no relevant fixes AFAICT. Any thoughts on what is going on here
appreciated:
