Subject[PATCH 5.4 013/104] net-sysfs: Fix reference count leak
Date
From: Jouni Hogander <jouni.hogander@unikie.com>

[ Upstream commit cb626bf566eb4433318d35681286c494f04fedcc ]

Netdev_register_kobject is calling device_initialize. In case of error
reference taken by device_initialize is not given up.

Drivers are supposed to call free_netdev in case of error. In non-error
case the last reference is given up there and device release sequence
is triggered. In error case this reference is kept and the release
sequence is never started.

Fix this by setting reg_state as NETREG_UNREGISTERED if registering
fails.

This is the rootcause for couple of memory leaks reported by Syzkaller:

v3 -> v4:
Set reg_state to NETREG_UNREGISTERED if registering fails

v2 -> v3:
* Replaced BUG_ON with WARN_ON in free_netdev and netdev_release

v1 -> v2:
* Relying on driver calling free_netdev rather than calling
put_device directly in error path
