Subject[PATCH 4.4 018/118] kexec: fix double-free when failing to relocate the purgatory
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Thiago Jung Bauermann <bauerman@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

commit 070c43eea5043e950daa423707ae3c77e2f48edb upstream.

If kexec_apply_relocations fails, kexec_load_purgatory frees pi->sechdrs
and pi->purgatory_buf. This is redundant, because in case of error
kimage_file_prepare_segments calls kimage_file_post_load_cleanup, which
will also free those buffers.

This causes two warnings like the following, one for pi->sechdrs and the
other for pi->purgatory_buf:

kexec-bzImage64: Loading purgatory failed
------------[ cut here ]------------

Fix by setting pi->sechdrs an pi->purgatory_buf to NULL, since vfree
won't try to free a NULL pointer.
