If the 2nd memory allocation of the loop fails, we must undo the
memory allocation done so far.

Hi Christophe,

Thanks for re-sending this.

In your previous mail you referred to the call mlx4_en_destroy_netdev here:
https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/v4.16-rc5/source/drivers/net/ethernet/mellanox/mlx4/en_main.c#L232

While I was referring to the one below, which is always called on failures:

https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/v4.16-rc5/source/drivers/net/ethernet/mellanox/mlx4/en_netdev.c#L3587

I still believe that the err_free_tx label and its while loop is redundant.

Regards,
Tariq

Well, the flows in which we need to nullify the tx_rings pointer (if 
any, I still need to investigate this) is not related to this init function.

Here we're safe.

Anyway, a V2 is already submitted, please use it for your next comments. 
I think patch is OK.

We do zero (twice) on init, that's right. But I think Yuval's comment is 
valid in case of the driver went into configuration change, or down/up, 
that reallocates the rings. I'm double checking this.

My understanding is that the array is zeoed at line 3289, when the whole 
priv struct is memset(0)'ed (also done in alloc_etherdev_mqs but leaving 
an explicit memset help to remind that the struct is zeroed)
If speed matters here (and I don't think so), the memset could be saved 
(the mlx4_en_priv struct is quite big after all), but at least a comment 
should remind that it is initialized within alloc_etherdev_mqs.

It's zeroed twice.  alloc_etherdev_mqs() allocates zeroed memory and
then we do a memset(priv, 0, sizeof(struct mlx4_en_priv));

Patch make sense but what's bothering me is that mlx4_en_free_resources
loops on the entire array, assuming !priv->tx_ring[t] means entry is
allocated but the existing code does not assume that, see [1]. So i looked
to see where tx_ring array is zeroed and didn't find it.

Am i missing something here.

If an error occurs, 'mlx4_en_destroy_netdev()' is called.
It then calls 'mlx4_en_free_resources()' which does the needed resources
cleanup.

So, doing some explicit kfree in the error handling path would lead to
some double kfree.

Simplify code to avoid such a case.
