Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.14 066/110] IB/mlx5: Fix mlx5_ib_alloc_mr error flow
From: Nitzan Carmi <>

[ Upstream commit 45e6ae7ef21b907dacb18da62d5787d74a31d860 ]

ibmr.device is being set only after ib_alloc_mr() is
(successfully) complete. Therefore, in case mlx5_core_create_mkey()
return with error, the error flow calls mlx5_free_priv_descs()
which uses ibmr.device (which doesn't exist yet), causing
a NULL dereference oops.

To fix this, the IB device should be set in the mr struct earlier
stage (e.g. prior to calling mlx5_core_create_mkey()).

Fixes: 8a187ee52b04 ("IB/mlx5: Support the new memory registration API")
