Subject[PATCH 5.4 022/132] soundwire: fix double free of dangling pointer
Date
From: Tom Rix <trix@redhat.com>

[ Upstream commit 3fbbf2148a406b3e350fe91e6fdd78eb42ecad24 ]

clang static analysis flags this problem

stream.c:844:9: warning: Use of memory after
it is freed
kfree(bus->defer_msg.msg->buf);
^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This happens in an error handler cleaning up memory
allocated for elements in a list.

list_for_each_entry(m_rt, &stream->master_list, stream_node) {
bus = m_rt->bus;

kfree(bus->defer_msg.msg->buf);
kfree(bus->defer_msg.msg);
}

And is triggered when the call to sdw_bank_switch() fails.
There are a two problems.

First, when sdw_bank_switch() fails, though it frees memory it
does not clear bus's reference 'defer_msg.msg' to that memory.

The second problem is the freeing msg->buf. In some cases
msg will be NULL so this will dereference a null pointer.
Need to check before freeing.
