[Cluster-devel] [PATCH] hexedit: avoid NULL dereference upon failed malloc



If the malloc of more_indir fails, the subsequent deref
via memset would cause a segfault.

I chose to avoid that by making more_indir a stack-local.
If it's 512-byte size is too big for your stack
requirements, let me know and I'll rewrite to
use malloc -- though doing it that way (and taking
care to avoid leaks), would probably end up uglier.

Subject: [PATCH] hexedit: avoid NULL dereference upon failed malloc

* gfs2/edit/hexedit.c (display_indirect): Avoid unchecked malloc
by declaring more_indir on the stack.
