Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 083/100] fs: ocfs2: fix a possible null-pointer dereference in ocfs2_info_scan_inode_alloc()
Date
From: Jia-Ju Bai <baijiaju1990@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit 2abb7d3b12d007c30193f48bebed781009bebdd2 ]

In ocfs2_info_scan_inode_alloc(), there is an if statement on line 283
to check whether inode_alloc is NULL:

if (inode_alloc)

When inode_alloc is NULL, it is used on line 287:

ocfs2_inode_lock(inode_alloc, &bh, 0);
ocfs2_inode_lock_full_nested(inode, ...)
struct ocfs2_super *osb = OCFS2_SB(inode->i_sb);

Thus, a possible null-pointer dereference may occur.

To fix this bug, inode_alloc is checked on line 286.

This bug is found by a static analysis tool STCheck written by us.
