[SeaBIOS] [PATCH] nvme: avoid use-after-free in nvme_controller_enable()
Posted by Jan Beulich via SeaBIOS 8 months, 1 week ago
Commit b68f313c9139 ("nvme: Record maximum allowed request size")
introduced a use of "identify" past it being passed to free(). Latch the
value of interest into a local variable.
