Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.5 454/542] bcache: fix use-after-free in register_bcache()

From: Coly Li <colyli@...e.de>

[ Upstream commit ae3cd299919af6eb670d5af0bc9d7ba14086bd8e ]

The patch "bcache: rework error unwinding in register_bcache" introduces
a use-after-free regression in register_bcache(). Here are current code,
	2510 out_free_path:
	2511         kfree(path);
	2512 out_module_put:
	2513         module_put(THIS_MODULE);
	2514 out:
	2515         pr_info("error %s: %s", path, err);
	2516         return ret;
If some error happens and the above code path is executed, at line 2511
path is released, but referenced at line 2515. Then KASAN reports a use-
after-free error message.

This patch changes line 2515 in the following way to fix the problem,
	2515         pr_info("error %s: %s", path?path:"", err);
