Julia Lawall - Aug. 8, 2011, 11:17 a.m.
From: Julia Lawall <julia@diku.dk>

Currently, error handling code in this function calls the function
sata_dwc_port_stop, but this function has essentially no effect if hsdevp
has not been stored in ap, which is the case throughout this function.  The
only effect is to print a debugging message including ap->print_id.

The code is rewritten to not call sata_dwc_port_stop, but instead to jump
to a local label that prints the original error message and the print_id
information.  In the case where hsdevp has been already allocated (but not
yet stored in ap), this value is freed as well.

A simplified version of the semantic match that finds this problem is as
follows: (http://coccinelle.lip6.fr/)

// <smpl>
@exists@
local idexpression x;
statement S,S1;
expression E;
identifier fl;
expression *ptr != NULL;

x = \(kmalloc\|kzalloc\|kcalloc\)(...);

     when != if (...) { <+...kfree(x)...+> }

     when != true x == NULL

               when forall
(
 return \(0\|<+...x...+>\|ptr\);

)
}
)
// </smpl>
