Subject: [PATCH 4.19 286/321] slip: Fix use-after-free Read in slip_open

From: Jouni Hogander <>

[ Upstream commit e58c1912418980f57ba2060017583067f5f71e52 ]

Slip_open doesn't clean-up device which registration failed from the
slip_devs device list. On next open after failure this list is iterated
and freed device is accessed. Fix this by calling sl_free_netdev in error

Here is the trace from the Syzbot:
