Subject[PATCH 4.12 183/196] acpi/nfit: Fix memory corruption/Unregister mce decoder on failure
Date
4.12-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Prarit Bhargava <prarit@redhat.com>

commit 7e700d2c59e5853c9126642976b4f5768f64c9b3 upstream.

nfit_init() calls nfit_mce_register() on module load. When the module
load fails the nfit mce decoder is not unregistered. The module's
memory is freed leaving the decoder chain referencing junk. This will
cause panics as future registrations will reference the free'd memory.

Unregister the nfit mce decoder on module init failure.

[v2]: register and then unregister mce handler to avoid losing mce events
[v3]: also cleanup nfit workqueue
