of: fix memory leak related to safe_name()
Fix a memory leak resulting from memory allocation in safe_name(). This patch fixes all call sites of safe_name(). Mathieu Malaterre reported the memory leak on boot: On my PowerMac device-tree would generate a duplicate name: [ 0.023043] device-tree: Duplicate name in PowerPC,G4@0, renamed to "l2-cache#1" in this case a newly allocated name is generated by `safe_name`. However in this case it is never deallocated. The bug was found using kmemleak reported as: unreferenced object 0xdf532e60 (size 32): comm "swapper", pid 1, jiffies 4294892300 (age 1993.532s) hex dump (first 32 bytes): 6c 32 2d 63 61 63 68 65 23 31 00 dd e4 dd 1e c2 l2-cache#1...... ec d4 ba ce 04 ec cc de 8e 85 e9 ca c4 ec cc 9e ................ backtrace: [<c02d3350>] kvasprintf+0x64/0xc8 [<c02d3400>] kasprintf+0x4c/0x5c [<c0453814>] safe_name.isra.1+0x80/0xc4 [<c04545d8>] __of_attach_node_sysfs+0x6c/0x11c [<c075f21c>] of_core_init+0x8c/0xf8 [<c0729594>] kernel_init_freeable+0xd4/0x208 [<c00047e8>] kernel_init+0x24/0x11c [<c00158ec>] ret_from_kernel_thread+0x5c/0x64 Link: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=120331 Signed-off-by: Frank Rowand <frank.rowand@am.sony.com> Reported-by: mathieu.malaterre@gmail.com Tested-by: Mathieu Malaterre <mathieu.malaterre@gmail.com> Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org Signed-off-by: Rob Herring <robh@kernel.org>
