Nicholas Mc Guire - Jan. 20, 2019, 3:52 a.m.
Checking of kmalloc() seems to have been committed - as
cx23885_dvb_register() is checking for != 0 return, returning
-ENOMEM should be fine here.  While at it address the coccicheck
suggestion to move to kmemdup rather than using kmalloc+memcpy.

Signed-off-by: Nicholas Mc Guire <hofrat@osadl.org>
Fixes: 46b21bbaa8a8 ("[media] Add support for DViCO FusionHDTV DVB-T Dual Express2")
---
Problem located with an experimental coccinelle script

Patch was compile tested with: x86_64_defconfig + MEDIA_SUPPORT=y
MEDIA_PCI_SUPPORT=y, MEDIA_DIGITAL_TV_SUPPORT=y,
MEDIA_ANALOG_TV_SUPPORT=y (for VIDEO_DEV), RC_CORE=y
VIDEO_CX23885=y

The coccicheck on the initial fix for kmalloc only reported:
drivers/media/pci/cx23885//cx23885-dvb.c:1477:33-40: WARNING opportunity for kmemdup
so that was merged into this patch - the return value still needs to
be checked.

Patch is against 5.0-rc2 (localversion-next is next-20190118)
