           Summary: Wrong memory allocation check in example
           Product: RTEMS

        OS/Version: RTEMS
            Status: NEW
          Severity: trivial
          Priority: P3

The memory allocation check in this example is incorrect
http://rtems.com/onlinedocs/doc-current/share/rtems/html/c_user/c_user00513.html 

  foo* bar = malloc (sizeof (foo));
  if (!foo)
     return -1;

You should have:

  foo* bar = malloc (sizeof (foo));
  if (!bar)
     return -1;

Since bar is the pointer to the allocated memory
