devm_clk_hw_register_fixed_factor_release(), the release function for
the devm_clk_hw_register_fixed_factor(), calls
clk_hw_unregister_fixed_factor(), which will kfree() the clock. However
after that the devres functions will also kfree the allocated data,
resulting in double free/memory corruption. Just call
clk_hw_unregister() instead, leaving kfree() to devres code.

Stephen, this fix affects the DSI PHY rework. Do we have a chance of
getting it into 5.12, otherwise there will be a cross-dependency between
msm-next and clk-next.

Doh.
Sorry for not spotting this when I wrote the patch.
Thank you for cleaning up after me.

Cheers,

Daniel

Think I can get this into the last fixes PR. One question though, I
think this follows the pattern that things like clk-divider.c use for
devm. Are those also broken?

It looks so. See e.g. the devres_release() function. It calls
(*release) callback, then it will kfree the resource.
Also see Documentation/driver-api/driver-model/devres.rst, which does
not kfree() in release functions.

Do you wish for me to send all the fixes?

Applied to clk-fixes. I also squashed this in to cleanup that ugly cast.

Short story: no other patches needed.

Long story:
I've checked the rest of devres allocations in clk subsystem.
Interesting, they use a bit different pattern: they devres_alloc a
pointer to the clock, then they fill the pointer with the new clock
data. The release callback would (correctly) free the clock pointer by
the devres and then devres code would kfree the devres data (clock
pointer).

The fixed-factor is unique in this area, because it devres_alloc's a
clock instance (rather than the pointer) and then fills it, so it
should not be freed in the release callback (only unregistered) with
the devres code kfreeing() the instance itself.

Cool thanks for checking. Maybe we should change those other callers in
clk directory to devres alloc the container structure instead of a
pointer. Then we avoid the double allocation. Glad it's not a critical
fix though.
