Subject: [PATCH] RDMA/ocrdma: fix use after free in ocrdma_dealloc_ucontext_pd()

From: Tom Rix <>

In ocrdma_dealloc_ucontext_pd() uctx->cntxt_pd is assigned to
the variable pd and then after uctx->cntxt_pd is freed, the
variable pd is passed to function _ocrdma_dealloc_pd() which
dereferences pd directly or through its call to

Reorder the free using the variable pd.

Fixes: 21a428a019c9 ("RDMA: Handle PD allocations by IB/core")
