Subject[PATCHv2] media: videobuf2-dma-contig: fix bad kfree in vb2_dma_contig_clear_max_seg_size
Commit 9495b7e92f716ab2bd6814fab5e97ab4a39adfdd ("driver core: platform:
Initialize dma_parms for platform devices") in v5.7-rc5 causes
vb2_dma_contig_clear_max_seg_size() to kfree memory that was not
allocated by vb2_dma_contig_set_max_seg_size().

The assumption in vb2_dma_contig_set_max_seg_size() seems to be that
dev->dma_parms is always NULL when the driver is probed, and the case
where dev->dma_parms has bee initialized by someone else than the driver
(by calling vb2_dma_contig_set_max_seg_size) will cause a failure.

All the current users of these functions are platform devices, which now
always have dma_parms set by the driver core. To fix the issue for v5.7,
make vb2_dma_contig_set_max_seg_size() return an error if dma_parms is
NULL to be on the safe side, and remove the kfree code from

For v5.8 we should remove the two functions and move the
dma_set_max_seg_size() calls into the drivers.

Fixes: 9495b7e92f71 ("driver core: platform: Initialize dma_parms for platform devices")

Changes in v2:
* vb2_dma_contig_clear_max_seg_size to empty static inline
* Added cc: stable and fixes tag
