[PATCH 2/3] mm/memory_hotplug: fix error handling in add_memory_resource()

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


In add_memory_resource(), creation of memory block devices occurs after
successful call to arch_add_memory(). However, creation of memory block
devices could fail.  In that case, arch_remove_memory() is called to
perform necessary cleanup.

Currently with or without altmap support, arch_remove_memory() is always
passed with altmap set to NULL during error handling. This leads to
freeing of struct pages using free_pages(), eventhough the allocation
might have been performed with altmap support via

Fix the error handling by passing altmap in arch_remove_memory(). This
ensures the following:
* When altmap is disabled, deallocation of the struct pages array occurs
  via free_pages().
* When altmap is enabled, deallocation occurs via vmem_altmap_free().
