Subject: [PATCH] common/mlx5: fix error handling in multi-class probe
Date: Thu, 25 Nov 2021 00:02:38 +0200
Message-ID: <> (raw)

From: Michael Baum <>

The common drivers_probe function calls in a loop to all probe functions
for classes requested by the user. After it manages to probe them all,
it updates this on the device in the "classes_loaded" field.

If one of them fails, all those probed to it are remove using the
drivers_remove function. However, this function only releases the
classes in the "classes_loaded" field on the given device and misses the
newly probed classes.

This patch removes the condition from the release function, and ensures
that the caller function sends a more accurate parameter.

Fixes: 8a41f4deccc3 ("common/mlx5: introduce layer for multiple class drivers")
