ACPI: Fix use-after-free in acpi_map_lsapic
Petr Vandrovec [Thu, 8 Mar 2012 21:33:24 +0000 (13:33 -0800)]
When processor is being hot-added to the system, acpi_map_lsapic invokes
ACPI _MAT method to find APIC ID and flags, verifies that returned structure
is indeed ACPI's local APIC structure, and that flags contain MADT_ENABLED
bit.  Then saves APIC ID, frees structure - and accesses structure when
computing arguments for acpi_register_lapic call.  Which sometime leads
to acpi_register_lapic call being made with second argument zero, failing
to bring processor online with error 'Unable to map lapic to logical cpu
number'.

As lapic->lapic_flags & ACPI_MADT_ENABLED was already confirmed to be non-zero
few lines above, we can just pass unconditional ACPI_MADT_ENABLED to the
acpi_register_lapic.
