Subject: Re: [PATCH net] net: cavium: liquidio: Avoid dma_unmap_single on
 uninitialized ndata

From: Florian Fainelli <>
Date: Fri, 15 Jul 2016 16:42:16 -0700

> The label lio_xmit_failed is used 3 times through liquidio_xmit() but it
> always makes a call to dma_unmap_single() using potentially
> uninitialized variables from "ndata" variable. Out of the 3 gotos, 2 run
> after ndata has been initialized, and had a prior dma_map_single() call.
> Fix this by adding a new error label: lio_xmit_dma_failed which does
> this dma_unmap_single() and then processed with the lio_xmit_failed
> fallthrough.
> Fixes: f21fb3ed364bb ("Add support of Cavium Liquidio ethernet adapters")
> Reported-by: coverity (CID 1309740)
