Subject: [dpdk-stable] [PATCH] mlx5/net: fix release of SQ resources in error flow
Date: Wed, 28 Oct 2020 19:10:40 +0200
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Fix in error flow in which the function mlx5_txq_release_devx_sq_resources
is called twice by setting the release object to NULL after the first call

The incorrect flow was introduced in the work done on generic
object creation.

Once an error flow inside mlx5_txq_create_devx_sq_resources
occurs the function will call mlx5_txq_release_devx_sq_resources
however the released pointers are not set to NULL after the release
calls and undefined memory is released in the same call in

This results in calls to MLX5_FREE with
an already released memory addresses and assert in mlx5_release_dbr:

EAL: Error: Invalid memory
EAL: Error: Invalid memory

PANIC in mlx5_txq_release_devx_sq_resources():
assert "(mlx5_release_dbr(&txq_obj->txq_ctrl->priv->dbrpgs,
 mlx5_os_get_umem_id (txq_obj->sq_dbrec_page->umem),
 txq_obj->sq_dbrec_offset)) == 0" failed

The fix is setting the released pointers to NULL after the first release
