3.19.8-ckt23 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Andreas Noever <andreas.noever at gmail.com>

commit 2ffa9a5d76a75abbc1f95c17959fced666095bdd upstream.

If tb_drom_read() fails, sw->drom is freed but not set to NULL.  sw->drom
is then freed again in the error path of tb_switch_alloc().

The bug can be triggered by unplugging a thunderbolt device shortly after
it is detected by the thunderbolt driver.

Clear sw->drom if tb_drom_read() fails.
