Subject[PATCH] rtlwifi: Fix null-pointer dereferences in error handling code of rtl_pci_probe()
Date
*BUG 1:
In rtl_pci_probe(), when rtlpriv->cfg->ops->init_sw_vars() fails,
rtl_deinit_core() in the error handling code is executed.
rtl_deinit_core() calls rtl_free_entries_from_scan_list(), which uses
rtlpriv->scan_list.list in list_for_each_entry_safe(), but it has been
initialized. Thus a null-pointer dereference occurs.
The reason is that rtlpriv->scan_list.list is initialized by
INIT_LIST_HEAD() in rtl_init_core(), which has not been called.

To fix this bug, rtl_deinit_core() should not be called when
rtlpriv->cfg->ops->init_sw_vars() fails.

*BUG 2:
In rtl_pci_probe(), rtl_init_core() can fail when rtl_regd_init() in
this function fails, and rtlpriv->scan_list.list has not been
initialized by INIT_LIST_HEAD(). Then, rtl_deinit_core() in the error
handling code of rtl_pci_probe() is executed. Finally, a null-pointer
dereference occurs due to the same reason of the above bug.

To fix this bug, the initialization of lists in rtl_init_core() are
performed before the call to rtl_regd_init().

These bugs are found by a runtime fuzzing tool named FIZZER written by
us.
