_ath_hal_attach leaks ath_hal struct on fail path

Reported by: Assigned to: mickflemm
Priority: minor Milestone: version 0.9.5
Component: madwifi-old-openhal Version: madwifi-old-openhal branch
Keywords: Cc:
Patch is attached: 0 Pending:


If AH_MOD_INC_USE_COUNT fails, it directly returns from the function with NULL as return value in 2.6:

if (ah)

there should be kfree somewhere. I'm attaching a little bit ugly patch, but apply something in its meaning.

I updated the AH_MOD_INC_USE_COUNT just like the way net80211/ieee80211_linux.h does. May not be the best way, but it works for the trunk version.

I won't update the branches (don't want to mess things up).

Can someone take a look at the branches and update those? thanks.

I believe r2481 fixes this problem

r2481 fixes trunk, but the branches still need to be fixed... Can you update the branches too mentor?
