Subject[PATCH 4.19 065/142] objtool: Fix double-free in .cold detection error path
Date
4.19-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

[ Upstream commit 0b9301fb632f7111a3293a30cc5b20f1b82ed08d ]

If read_symbols() fails during second list traversal (the one dealing
with ".cold" subfunctions) it frees the symbol, but never deletes it
from the list/hash_table resulting in symbol being freed again in
elf_close(). Fix it by just returning an error, leaving cleanup to
elf_close().
