[PATCH 5.17 0169/1126] media: venus: vdec: fixed possible memory leak issue

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Tue Apr 05 2022 - 04:01:55 EST

From: Ameer Hamza <amhamza.mgc@xxxxxxxxx>

commit 8403fdd775858a7bf04868d43daea0acbe49ddfc upstream.

The venus_helper_alloc_dpb_bufs() implementation allows an early return
on an error path when checking the id from ida_alloc_min() which would
not release the earlier buffer allocation.

Move the direct kfree() from the error checking of dma_alloc_attrs() to
the common fail path to ensure that allocations are released on all
error paths in this function.

Addresses-Coverity: 1494120 ("Resource leak")
