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


From: Vegard Nossum <vegard.nossum@xxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 5ba092efc7ddff040777ae7162f1d195f513571b ]

If iriap_register_lsap() fails to allocate memory, self->lsap is
set to NULL. However, none of the callers handle the failure and
irlmp_connect_request() will happily dereference it:

iriap_register_lsap: Unable to allocated LSAP!

The bug seems to have been around since forever.

There's more problems with missing error checks in iriap_init() (and
indeed all of irda_init()), but that's a bigger problem that needs
very careful review and testing. This patch will fix the most serious
bug (as it's easily reached from unprivileged userspace).

I have tested my patch with a reproducer.
