Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.5 078/542] clocksource/drivers/bcm2835_timer: Fix memory leak of timer

From: Colin Ian King <>

[ Upstream commit 2052d032c06761330bca4944bb7858b00960e868 ]

Currently when setup_irq fails the error exit path will leak the
recently allocated timer structure.  Originally the code would
throw a panic but a later commit changed the behaviour to return
via the err_iounmap path and hence we now have a memory leak. Fix
this by adding a err_timer_free error path that kfree's timer.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Resource Leak")
Fixes: 524a7f08983d ("clocksource/drivers/bcm2835_timer: Convert init function to return error")
