driver core: Fix unbalanced device reference in drivers_probe
commit bb34cb6bbd287b57e955bc5cfd42fcde6aaca279 upstream. bus_find_device_by_name() acquires a device reference which is never released. This results in an object leak, which on older kernels results in failure to release all resources of PCI devices. libvirt uses drivers_probe to re-attach devices to the host after assignment and is therefore a common trigger for this leak. Example: # cd /sys/bus/pci/ # dmesg -C # echo 1 > devices/0000\:01\:00.0/sriov_numvfs # echo 0 > devices/0000\:01\:00.0/sriov_numvfs # dmesg | grep 01:10 pci 0000:01:10.0: [8086:10ca] type 00 class 0x020000 kobject: '0000:01:10.0' (ffff8801d79cd0a8): kobject_add_internal: parent: '0000:00:01.0', set: 'devices' kobject: '0000:01:10.0' (ffff8801d79cd0a8): kobject_uevent_env kobject: '0000:01:10.0' (ffff8801d79cd0a8): fill_kobj_path: path = '/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.0/0000:01:10.0' kobject: '0000:01:10.0' (ffff8801d79cd0a8): kobject_uevent_env kobject: '0000:01:10.0' (ffff8801d79cd0a8): fill_kobj_path: path = '/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.0/0000:01:10.0' kobject: '0000:01:10.0' (ffff8801d79cd0a8): kobject_uevent_env kobject: '0000:01:10.0' (ffff8801d79cd0a8): fill_kobj_path: path = '/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.0/0000:01:10.0' kobject: '0000:01:10.0' (ffff8801d79cd0a8): kobject_cleanup, parent (null) kobject: '0000:01:10.0' (ffff8801d79cd0a8): calling ktype release kobject: '0000:01:10.0': free name [kobject freed as expected] # dmesg -C # echo 1 > devices/0000\:01\:00.0/sriov_numvfs # echo 0000:01:10.0 > drivers_probe # echo 0 > devices/0000\:01\:00.0/sriov_numvfs # dmesg | grep 01:10 pci 0000:01:10.0: [8086:10ca] type 00 class 0x020000 kobject: '0000:01:10.0' (ffff8801d79ce0a8): kobject_add_internal: parent: '0000:00:01.0', set: 'devices' kobject: '0000:01:10.0' (ffff8801d79ce0a8): kobject_uevent_env kobject: '0000:01:10.0' (ffff8801d79ce0a8): fill_kobj_path: path = '/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.0/0000:01:10.0' kobject: '0000:01:10.0' (ffff8801d79ce0a8): kobject_uevent_env kobject: '0000:01:10.0' (ffff8801d79ce0a8): fill_kobj_path: path = '/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.0/0000:01:10.0' kobject: '0000:01:10.0' (ffff8801d79ce0a8): kobject_uevent_env kobject: '0000:01:10.0' (ffff8801d79ce0a8): fill_kobj_path: path = '/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.0/0000:01:10.0' [no free] Signed-off-by: Alex Williamson <alex.williamson@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>
