Subject[PATCH 5.3 307/344] ovl: Fix dereferencing possible ERR_PTR()
Date
From: Ding Xiang <dingxiang@cmss.chinamobile.com>

commit 97f024b9171e74c4443bbe8a8dce31b917f97ac5 upstream.

if ovl_encode_real_fh() fails, no memory was allocated
and the error in the error-valued pointer should be returned.

Fixes: 9b6faee07470 ("ovl: check ERR_PTR() return value from ovl_encode_fh()")
