Merge tag 'pstore-v5.5-rc6' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/kees/linux
Pull pstore fix from Kees Cook: "Cengiz Can forwarded a Coverity report about more problems with a rare pstore initialization error path, so the allocation lifetime was rearranged to avoid needing to share the kfree() responsibilities between caller and callee" * tag 'pstore-v5.5-rc6' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/kees/linux: pstore/ram: Regularize prz label allocation lifetime
