Subject[PATCH 4.19 125/276] audit: fix a memory leak bug
Date
[ Upstream commit 70c4cf17e445264453bc5323db3e50aa0ac9e81f ]

In audit_rule_change(), audit_data_to_entry() is firstly invoked to
translate the payload data to the kernel's rule representation. In
audit_data_to_entry(), depending on the audit field type, an audit tree may
be created in audit_make_tree(), which eventually invokes kmalloc() to
allocate the tree. Since this tree is a temporary tree, it will be then
freed in the following execution, e.g., audit_add_rule() if the message
type is AUDIT_ADD_RULE or audit_del_rule() if the message type is
AUDIT_DEL_RULE. However, if the message type is neither AUDIT_ADD_RULE nor
AUDIT_DEL_RULE, i.e., the default case of the switch statement, this
temporary tree is not freed.

To fix this issue, only allocate the tree when the type is AUDIT_ADD_RULE
or AUDIT_DEL_RULE.
