Subject[PATCH 4.9 038/329] perf record: Fix failed memory allocation for get_cpuid_str
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Thomas Richter <tmricht@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

[ Upstream commit 81fccd6ca507d3b2012eaf1edeb9b1dbf4bd22db ]

In x86 architecture dependend part function get_cpuid_str() mallocs a
128 byte buffer, but does not check if the memory allocation succeeded
or not.

When the memory allocation fails, function __get_cpuid() is called with
first parameter being a NULL pointer. However this function references
its first parameter and operates on a NULL pointer which might cause
core dumps.
