Subject[PATCH v4 01/12] KVM: arm/arm64: Set dist->spis to NULL after kfree
Date
in case kvm_vgic_map_resources() fails, typically if the vgic
distributor is not defined, __kvm_vgic_destroy will be called
several times. Indeed kvm_vgic_map_resources() is called on
first vcpu run. As a result dist->spis is freeed more than once
and on the second time it causes a "kernel BUG at mm/slub.c:3912!"

Set dist->spis to NULL to avoid the crash.

Fixes: ad275b8bb1e6 ("KVM: arm/arm64: vgic-new: vgic_init: implement
vgic_init")
