Subject[PATCH 4.9 08/16] slab: alien caches must not be initialized if the allocation of the alien cache failed
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Christoph Lameter <cl@linux.com>

commit 09c2e76ed734a1d36470d257a778aaba28e86531 upstream.

Callers of __alloc_alien() check for NULL. We must do the same check in
__alloc_alien_cache to avoid NULL pointer dereferences on allocation
failures.

Fixes: 49dfc304ba241 ("slab: use the lock on alien_cache, instead of the lock on array_cache")
Fixes: c8522a3a5832b ("Slab: introduce alloc_alien")
