[refpolicy] [PATCH v6] fc_sort: memory leakages

Guido Trentalancia guido at trentalancia.com
Wed Oct 4 21:02:21 UTC 2017


Avoid memory leakages in the fc_sort executable (now passes
all valgrind AND Clang static analyzer tests fine).

Some NULL pointer checks with or without associated error
reporting.

Some white space and comment formatting fixes.

Optimization: avoid unnecessary operations (unnecessary
memory allocation/deallocation and list copying).

Reverts 7821eb6f37d785ab6ac3bbdc39282c799ad22393 as such
trick is no longer needed, given that all memory leakages
have now been fixed.

This is the sixth version of this patch. Please do not use
the first version as it introduces a serious bug.

For reference, the original issue reported by the Cland
static analyzer is as follows:

support/fc_sort.c:494:6: warning: Potential leak of memory 
pointed to by 'head'
            malloc(sizeof(file_context_bucket_t));
