Subject[PATCH 3.17 03/47] drivers/input/evdev.c: dont kfree() a vmalloc address
Date
3.17-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org>

commit 92788ac1eb06e69a822de45e2a8a63fa45eb5be2 upstream.

If kzalloc() failed and then evdev_open_device() fails, evdev_open()
will pass a vmalloc'ed pointer to kfree.

This might fix https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=88401, where
there was a crash in kfree().
