SubjectRe: [PATCH] drm/imx: fix memory leak in imx_pd_bind
No, that is not correct! You should not try to free imxpd here as it
is a resource-managed allocation via devm_kzalloc(). It means memory
allocated with this function is automatically freed on driver detach.
So, this patch introduces a double-free.
