SubjectRe: BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request in dput (2)
From
Date
Hello, Omar.

syzbot is reporting a crash due to dput(-EINVAL) [1]. I think the location is

dir = debugfs_lookup(buts->name, blk_debugfs_root);
if (!dir)
bt->dir = dir = debugfs_create_dir(buts->name, blk_debugfs_root);

added by commit 6ac93117ab009d39 ("blktrace: use existing disk debugfs directory").

Currently, Greg Kroah-Hartman is posting patches:

When calling debugfs functions, there is no need to ever check the
return value. The function can work or not, but the code logic should
never do something different based on this.

Omar, what do you want to do for this case?
