Subject[PATCH 4.18 08/44] pstore/ram: Fix failure-path memory leak in ramoops_init
Date
4.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Kees Cook <keescook@chromium.org>

commit bac6f6cda206ad7cbe0c73c35e494377ce9c4749 upstream.

As reported by nixiaoming, with some minor clarifications:

1) memory leak in ramoops_register_dummy():
dummy_data = kzalloc(sizeof(*dummy_data), GFP_KERNEL);
but no kfree() if platform_device_register_data() fails.

2) memory leak in ramoops_init():
Missing platform_device_unregister(dummy) and kfree(dummy_data)
if platform_driver_register(&ramoops_driver) fails.

I've clarified the purpose of ramoops_register_dummy(), and added a
common cleanup routine for all three failure paths to call.
