After looking at the fix, I figured out what happened with KASAN. Filed https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=199359. In short, tricky interplay between kzfree, ksize and double-free detection. If KASAN worked as intended it would give a nice "double-free in this stack for object allocated in this stack and previously freed in this stack", which would probably make debugging much simpler. > ---8<--- > > During freeing of the internal buffers used by the DRBG, set the pointer > to NULL.
