Subject[PATCH][next] media: stv090x: fix double free on state object
From: Colin Ian King <>

There two callers of stv090x_setup_compound manage the allocation and
freeing if state there is an error condition from stv090x_setup_compound.
Currently function stv090x_setup_compound also frees the state object
too, leading to a double free in the callers of this function. Fix
this by removing the extraneous free in stv090x_setup_compound and just
leave the callers handle the allocation/free'ing.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Double free")
Fixes: eb5005df886b ("media: stv090x: Implement probe/remove for stv090x")
