[PATCH 1/1] cr: fix ckpt_obj_fetch return values

Serge E. Hallyn serue at us.ibm.com
Wed May 13 09:52:51 PDT 2009


ckpt_obj_fetch returned ERR_PTR(error) on some failures, NULL on
others.  Not all of its callers were checking for NULL, which
would lead to NULL dereferences.

Return -EINVAL if the object is not in the hash table.  Fix up
pipe_file_restore to do the right thing.
