Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 096/100] virt: vbox: fix memory leak in hgcm_call_preprocess_linaddr
Date
From: Navid Emamdoost <navid.emamdoost@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit e0b0cb9388642c104838fac100a4af32745621e2 ]

In hgcm_call_preprocess_linaddr memory is allocated for bounce_buf but
is not released if copy_form_user fails. In order to prevent memory leak
in case of failure, the assignment to bounce_buf_ret is moved before the
error check. This way the allocated bounce_buf will be released by the
caller.
