Subject[GIT PULL] pstore fix for v5.5-rc6
Hi Linus,

Please pull this pstore fix for v5.5-rc6. Cengiz Can forwarded a Coverity
report about more problems with a rare pstore initialization error path,
so the allocation lifetime was rearranged to avoid needing to share the
kfree() responsibilities between caller and callee.

Thanks!

-Kees
