Subject: [PATCH] MIPS: VPE: Fix a double free and a memory leak in
'release_vpe()'
commit bef8e2dfceed6daeb6ca3e8d33f9c9d43b926580 upstream.
Pointer on the memory allocated by 'alloc_progmem()' is stored in
'v->load_addr'. So this is this memory that should be freed by
'release_progmem()'.
'release_progmem()' is only a call to 'kfree()'.
With the current code, there is both a double free and a memory leak.
Fix it by passing the correct pointer to 'release_progmem()'.
Fixes: e01402b115ccc ("More AP / SP bits for the 34K, the Malta bits and things. Still wants")
