Subject[PATCH 4.19 258/271] powerpc/pseries: Fix oops in hotplug memory notifier
From: Nathan Lynch <>

commit 0aa82c482ab2ece530a6f44897b63b274bb43c8e upstream.

During post-migration device tree updates, we can oops in
pseries_update_drconf_memory() if the source device tree has an
ibm,dynamic-memory-v2 property and the destination has a
ibm,dynamic_memory (v1) property. The notifier processes an "update"
for the ibm,dynamic-memory property but it's really an add in this
scenario. So make sure the old property object is there before
dereferencing it.

Fixes: 2b31e3aec1db ("powerpc/drmem: Add support for ibm, dynamic-memory-v2 property")
Cc: # v4.16+
