[PATCH 4.1 14/86] drm: fix mutex leak in drm_dp_get_mst_branch_device

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Fri Nov 06 2015 - 15:26:44 EST

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


From: Adam Richter <adamrichter4@xxxxxxxxx>

commit 30730c7f5943b3beace1e29f7f1476e05de3da14 upstream.

In Linux 4.3-rc5, there is an error case in drm_dp_get_branch_device
that returns without releasing mgr->lock, resulting a spew of kernel
messages about a kernel work function possibly having leaked a mutex
and presumably more serious adverse consequences later. This patch
changes the error to "goto out" to unlock the mutex before returning.

[airlied: grabbed from drm-next as it fixes something we've seen]
