drivers/char/hvc_console.c: adjust call to put_tty_driver
The call to put_tty_driver is out of place and is applied to the wrong argument. The function enclosing the patched code calls alloc_tty_driver and stores the result in drv. Subsequently, there are two occurrences of error handling code, one making a goto to put_tty and one making a goto to stop_thread. At the point of the first one the assignment hvc_driver = drv has not yet been executed, and from inspecting the rest of the file it seems that hvc_driver would be NULL. Thus the current call to put_tty_driver is useless, and one applied to drv is needed. The goto stop_thread is in the error handling code for a call to tty_register_driver, but the error cases in tty_register_driver do not free its argument, so it should be done here. Thus, I have moved the put_tty label after the stop_thread label, so that put_tty_driver is called in both cases. The semantic match that finds this problem is as follows: (http://www.emn.fr/x-info/coccinelle/) // <smpl> @r exists@ local idexpression x; expression E,f; position p1,p2,p3; identifier l; statement S; @@ x = alloc_tty_driver@p1(...) ... if (x == NULL) S ... when != E = x when != put_tty_driver(x) goto@p2 l; ... when != E = x when != f(...,x,...) when any ( return \(0\|x\); | return@p3 ...; ) @script:python@ p1 << r.p1; p2 << r.p2; p3 << r.p3; @@ print "%s: call on line %s not freed or saved before return on line %s via line %s" % (p1[0].file,p1[0].line,p3[0].line,p2[0].line) // </smpl> Signed-off-by: Julia Lawall <julia@diku.dk> Signed-off-by: Alan Cox <alan@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
