Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.0 015/173] initramfs: free initrd memory if opening /initrd.image fails
Date
From: Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de>

[ Upstream commit 54c7a8916a887f357088f99e9c3a7720cd57d2c8 ]

Patch series "initramfs tidyups".

I've spent some time chasing down behavior in initramfs and found
plenty of opportunity to improve the code. A first stab on that is
contained in this series.

This patch (of 7):

We free the initrd memory for all successful or error cases except for the
case where opening /initrd.image fails, which looks like an oversight.

Steven said:

: This also changes the behaviour when CONFIG_INITRAMFS_FORCE is enabled
: - specifically it means that the initrd is freed (previously it was
: ignored and never freed). But that seems like reasonable behaviour and
: the previous behaviour looks like another oversight.
