Subject[PATCH 4.15 063/105] module: propagate error in modules_open()
Date
4.15-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Leon Yu <chianglungyu@gmail.com>

commit 3f553b308bb004eb730da8e00a28150c157c7724 upstream.

otherwise kernel can oops later in seq_release() due to dereferencing null
file->private_data which is only set if seq_open() succeeds.

BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000000
IP: seq_release+0xc/0x30
Call Trace:
