Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.4 015/459] media: meson: add missing allocation failure check on new_buf

From: Colin Ian King <>

[ Upstream commit 11e0e167d071a28288a7a0a211d48c571d19b56f ]

Currently if the allocation of new_buf fails then a null pointer
dereference occurs when assiging new_buf->vb. Avoid this by returning
early on a memory allocation failure as there is not much more can
be done at this point.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Dereference null return")

Fixes: 3e7f51bd9607 ("media: meson: add v4l2 m2m video decoder driver")
