SubjectRe: [PATCH] irqchip/stm32: Fix "WARNING: invalid free of devm_ allocated
Date
Hi Daode,


I confirm that this patch is not a good idea, here are some explanations.

irq-stm32-exti.c deals with two different purposes:

- either it is used to probe the "st,stm32mp1-exti" compatible device.
In that case .probe() is invoked and uses devm_kzalloc() to get memory.
No need to free memory.

-either is it used for other stm32 devices. In that case, there is no
probe function, the driver is 'just' init'ed. In that case,
devm_kzalloc() is not used and explicit free memory is required.

As said by Mark, you have just mixed the two paths.
