[PATCH v2] staging: greybus: audio: fix loop cursor use after iteration

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


gbaudio_dapm_free_controls() iterates over widgets using the
list_for_each_entry*() family of macros from <linux/list.h>, which
leaves the loop cursor pointing to a meaningless structure if it
completes a traversal of the list. The cursor was set to NULL at the end
of the loop body, but would be overwritten by the final loop cursor

Because of this behavior, the widget could be non-null after the loop
even if the widget wasn't found, and the cleanup logic would treat the
pointer as a valid widget to free.

To fix this, introduce a temporary variable to act as the loop cursor
and copy it to a variable that can be accessed after the loop finishes.
Due to not removing any list elements, use list_for_each_entry() instead
of list_for_each_entry_safe() in the revised loop.

This was detected with the help of Coccinelle.
