[PATCH 4.14 38/41] sched/cpufreq/schedutil: Fix error path mutex unlock

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Tue Mar 26 2019 - 02:35:33 EST

4.14-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Jules Maselbas <jules.maselbas@xxxxxxx>

commit 1b5d43cfb69759d8ef8d30469cea31d0c037aed5 upstream.

This patch prevents the 'global_tunables_lock' mutex from being
unlocked before being locked. This mutex is not locked if the
sugov_kthread_create() function fails.
