[PATCH v4 3/3] btrfs: Use kfree() in btrfs_ioctl_get_subvol_info()

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


In btrfs_ioctl_get_subvol_info(), there is a classic case where kzalloc()
was incorrectly paired with kzfree(). According to David Sterba, there
isn't any sensitive information in the subvol_info that needs to be
cleared before freeing. So kfree_sensitive() isn't really needed,
use kfree() instead.
