That is true, but I notice that the adev structure comes from outside this
driver:

static int acp_hw_init(void *handle)
{
...
struct amdgpu_device *adev = (struct amdgpu_device *)handle;
...
}

As far as I can tell, the init() does not explicitly set these to NULL:
adev->acp.acp_res
adev->acp.acp_cell
adev->acp.acp_genpd

I am assuming that core code sets these to NULL, before calling
acp_hw_init(). But is that guaranteed or simply a happy accident?
Ie. if they are NULL today, are they likely to remain NULL tomorrow?

Because calling kfree() on a stale pointer would be, well
not good. Especially not on an error path, which typically
does not receive much testing, if any.

My apologies if I have misinterpreted this, I am not familiar with
this code base.

Sven
