Subject: [PATCH] power: supply: fix memory leaks (v2)

From: Qiushi Wu <>

In function power_supply_add_hwmon_sysfs(), psyhw->props is
allocated by bitmap_zalloc(). But this pointer is not deallocated
when devm_add_action fail,  which lead to a memory leak bug. To fix
this, we replace devm_add_action with devm_add_action_or_reset.

  - Prevent introducing double-free.
  - Added fixes tag

Fixes: e67d4dfc9ff19 ("power: supply: Add HWMON compatibility layer")
