[PATCH][next] cifsd: fix kfree of uninitialized pointer oid

Posted by Colin King 5 days, 13 hours ago
From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@canonical.com>

Currently function ksmbd_neg_token_init_mech_type can kfree an
uninitialized pointer oid when the call to asn1_oid_decode fails
when vlen is out of range. All the other failure cases in
function asn1_oid_decode set *oid to NULL on an error, so fix the
issue by ensuring the vlen out of range error also nullifies the
pointer.

Fixes: 8bae4419ce63 ("cifsd: add goto fail in neg_token_init_mech_type()")
Addresses-Coverity: ("Uninitialized pointer read")
