Yes, you are right. It has been a while so I must lost a bit memory. Actually,
it looks like in dasd_eckd_check_characteristic() that device->private is set to
NULL from this path,

/* Read Configuration Data */
rc = dasd_eckd_read_conf(device);
if (rc)
goto out_err1;

out_err1:
kfree(private->conf_data);
kfree(device->private);
device->private = NULL;
return rc;

because dasd_eckd_read_conf() returns -ENOMEM and calls,

out_error:
kfree(rcd_buf);
*rcd_buffer = NULL;
*rcd_buffer_size = 0;
return ret;

It will only free its own config_data in one operational path, but there could
has already allocated in earlier paths in dasd_eckd_read_conf() without any
rollback and calls return,

for (lpm = 0x80; lpm; lpm>>= 1) {
if (!(lpm & opm))
continue;
rc = dasd_eckd_read_conf_lpm(device, &conf_data,
     &conf_len, lpm);
if (rc && rc != -EOPNOTSUPP) { /* -EOPNOTSUPP is ok */
DBF_EVENT_DEVID(DBF_WARNING, device->cdev,
"Read configuration data returned "
"error %d", rc);
return rc;
}

Later, dasd_eckd_uncheck_device() see private->device is NULL without cleaning
up. Does it make sense?
