[PATCH] staging: greybus: don't use index pointer after iter

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


There are some usages of index pointer of list(w) which may not point to
the right entry when the required entry is not found and the list traversal
completes with index pointer pointing to the last entry. So, use w_found
flag to track the case where the entry is found.

Currently, When the condition (w->dapm != dapm) is true the loop continues
and when it is not then it compares the name strings and breaks out of the
loop if they match with w pointing to the right entry and it also breaks
out of loop if they didn't match by additionally setting w to NULL. But
what if the condition (w->dapm != dapm) is never false and the list
traversal completes with w pointing to last entry then usage of it after
the iter may not be correct. And there is no way to know whether the entry
is found. So, if we introduce w_found to track when the entry is found
then we can account for the case where the entry is not actually found and
the list traversal completes.

Fixes coccinelle error:

invalid reference to the index variable of the iterator on line 127
