Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 247/252] NFS: Fix memory leaks
From: Wenwen Wang <>

[ Upstream commit 123c23c6a7b7ecd2a3d6060bea1d94019f71fd66 ]

In _nfs42_proc_copy(), 'res->commit_res.verf' is allocated through
kzalloc() if 'args->sync' is true. In the following code, if
'res->synchronous' is false, handle_async_copy() will be invoked. If an
error occurs during the invocation, the following code will not be executed
and the error will be returned . However, the allocated
'res->commit_res.verf' is not deallocated, leading to a memory leak. This
is also true if the invocation of process_copy_commit() returns an error.

To fix the above leaks, redirect the execution to the 'out' label if an
error is encountered.
