DescriptionIn the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: class: fix use-after-free in class_register() The lock_class_key is still registered and can be found in lock_keys_hash hlist after subsys_private is freed in error handler path.A task who iterate over the lock_keys_hash later may cause use-after-free.So fix that up and unregister the lock_class_key before kfree(cp). On our platform, a driver fails to kset_register because of creating duplicate filename '/class/xxx'.With Kasan enabled, it prints a invalid-access bug report. KASAN bug report: BUG: KASAN: invalid-access in lockdep_register_key+0x19c/0x1bc Write of size 8 at addr 15ffff808b8c0368 by task modprobe/252 Pointer tag: [15], memory tag: [fe] CPU: 7 PID: 252 Comm: modprobe Tainted: G W 6.6.0-mainline-maybe-dirty #1 Call trace: dump_backtrace+0x1b0/0x1e4 show_stack+0x2c/0x40 dump_stack_lvl+0xac/0xe0 print_report+0x18c/0x4d8 kasan_report+0xe8/0x148 __hwasan_store8_noabort+0x88/0x98 lockdep_register_key+0x19c/0x1bc class_register+0x94/0x1ec init_module+0xbc/0xf48 [rfkill] do_one_initcall+0x17c/0x72c do_init_module+0x19c/0x3f8 ...

It's worth noting that this only can happen if lockdep is enabled, which is not true for normal system.
