SubjectAW: [PATCH 1/4] clk: mvebu: Fix a memory leak in an error handling path
Date
yep,
there was a patch containing while()/free(), i guessed the comment
was accidentaly copied (or do i mixup something ?)

forget about it, the comment was confusing me.
IMHO it is the wrong way around.
I would say:

sightly rearrange the code:
- use kasprintf instead of kzalloc/sprintf to simplify code and avoid a
magic number
If an error occurs in the for_each loop, clk_name must be freed.
goto bail_out;

as side effect more that 9 clk_cpu are now correctly shown.

hope that helps,

re,
wh

Agreed, Thx.
I'll wait a few days to see if there are other comments before sending a
v2. (especially if 4/4 is correct or not)
I'll also add "clk-cpu:" after "clk: mvebu:"

But here, I don't follow you.
What do you mean? Which other patch?

Do you mean that the commit message has to be updated accordingly?
(ie: s/clk_name/cpuclk[cpu].clk_name/ must be freed)
