[PATCH 4/9] drivers/xen/gntalloc.c: introduce missing kfree

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

Error handling code following a kmalloc should free the allocated data.
Out_unlock is used on both success and failure, so free vm_priv before
jumping to that label.

A simplified version of the semantic match that finds the problem is as
follows: (http://coccinelle.lip6.fr)

// <smpl>
@r exists@
local idexpression x;
statement S;
identifier f1;
position p1,p2;
expression *ptr != NULL;

x@p1 = \(kmalloc\|kzalloc\|kcalloc\)(...);
if (x == NULL) S
<... when != x
     when != if (...) { <+...x...+> }
 return \(0\|<+...x...+>\|ptr\);
 return@p2 ...;

p1 << r.p1;
p2 << r.p2;

print "* file: %s kmalloc %s return %s" % (p1[0].file,p1[0].line,p2[0].line)
// </smpl>
