Subject: [PATCH 3.13 001/149] zram: avoid null access when fail to alloc meta

3.13-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Minchan Kim <>

commit db5d711e2db776f18219b033e5dc4fb7e4264dd7 upstream.

zram_meta_alloc could fail so caller should check it.  Otherwise, your
system will hang.
