[PATCH 3.12 090/206] dm log userspace: fix memory leak in dm_ulog_tfr_init failure path

From: Jiri Slaby
Date: Tue Nov 18 2014 - 09:52:28 EST

From: Alexey Khoroshilov <khoroshilov@xxxxxxxxx>

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


commit 56ec16cb1e1ce46354de8511eef962a417c32c92 upstream.

If cn_add_callback() fails in dm_ulog_tfr_init(), it does not
deallocate prealloced memory but calls cn_del_callback().

Found by Linux Driver Verification project (linuxtesting.org).
