arch/x86/kernel/kdebugfs.c: introduce missing kfree
Error handling code following a kmalloc should free the allocated data. Note that at the point of the change, node has not yet been stored in d, so it is not affected by the existing cleanup code. The semantic match that finds the problem is as follows: (http://www.emn.fr/x-info/coccinelle/) // <smpl> @r exists@ local idexpression x; statement S; expression E; identifier f,l; position p1,p2; expression *ptr != NULL; @@ ( if ((x@p1 = \(kmalloc\|kzalloc\|kcalloc\)(...)) == NULL) S | x@p1 = \(kmalloc\|kzalloc\|kcalloc\)(...); ... if (x == NULL) S ) <... when != x when != if (...) { <+...x...+> } x->f = E ...> ( return \(0\|<+...x...+>\|ptr\); | return@p2 ...; ) @script:python@ p1 << r.p1; p2 << r.p2; @@ print "* file: %s kmalloc %s return %s" % (p1[0].file,p1[0].line,p2[0].line) // </smpl> Signed-off-by: Julia Lawall <julia@diku.dk> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
