SubjectAW: [PATCH 1/4] clk: mvebu: Fix a memory leak in an error handling path
clk_name could be replaced with cpuclk[cpu].clk_name

and the commit msg is from the other patch (free cpuclk[cpu].clk_name)

Betreff: [PATCH 1/4] clk: mvebu: Fix a memory leak in an error handling path

WARNUNG: Diese E-Mail kam von außerhalb der Organisation. Klicken Sie nicht auf Links oder öffnen Sie keine Anhänge, es sei denn, Sie kennen den/die Absender*in und wissen, dass der Inhalt sicher ist.

If an error occurs in the for_each loop, clk_name must be freed.

In order to do so, sightly rearrange the code:
- move the allocation to simplify error handling
- use kasprintf instead of kzalloc/sprintf to simplify code and avoid a
magic number

Fixes: ab8ba01b3fe5 ("clk: mvebu: add armada-370-xp CPU specific clocks")
Signed-off-by: Christophe JAILLET <>
The { } around the 1 line block after kasprintf is intentional and makes
sense with 2/2
